Sony’s Thoughts: Looking Forward

It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. I’ve been trying to figure out where 2010 went but I’ve given up searching and am already looking toward 2011. I don’t know what it will hold but I’m sure it will be like most years: full of joys and sorrows, laughter and tears but mostly full of the awareness that there is a God, He holds the world in His hands, and He is going to take care of His people. My responsibility is to keep my eyes on Him and know that nothing in this world can harm me for I’m sheltered in the arms of God!

I don’t know what last year was like for you and I don’t know if you’re full of anticipation or dread for the coming one but I do know that, although we may not know the future, God does, and He has promised to never leave or forsake us. He’s also promised that His grace is sufficient and that His strength is made perfect through our weakness.

Therefore, I eagerly look forward to seeing what God does this next year. With the shape that our country’s in and the financial instability our country experiencing, it can be scary at times but I’m trusting God to lead and guide and give grace where needed. Nothing can happen without His approval and He will only do what’s best for me. He’ll do the same for you.

A couple things I’m asking God for is to make me more compassionate and more in tune with His Spirit. I want to be used of Him more than ever before. I want to encourage others to keep fighting this never ending battle because one day we will see Jesus. If nothing else, each year that passes brings us closer to that day. And I look forward to finally getting to meet each of you and hearing how you came to meet the God I love.

May you have a blessed 2011 and may you continue to grow in the love and grace and knowledge of God.
