As you enjoy this time with family and friends, may your heart be encouraged and calm, resting in the certainty that the God who planned for our salvation and who brings a new year every 365-1/4 days has all of time and history in His capable hands.
When we have faith, we grow to rest with hope and peace upon His promises. It doesn’t matter what politicians or extremists, weather or traffic, sickness or financial storms, life or death bring us. God has promised, and He cannot lie. He will indeed work everything together for our good and His glory.
Looking forward to the New Year with hope and joy, for He is already there.
