We have crossed the threshhold of a new year -- a new beginning. As I look back over 2011, it was a different year, and at times, a difficult year...BUT MY GOD was with me every step of the way! 2012 is now here. I love a new year for it represents a fresh start, a brand new set of days overflowing with new dreams and unmarked possibilities, yet I also know that this year is full of unknowns. BUT, the good news is that what lies ahead is no surprise to God! I recently read in a devotional..."He has already been where we are going! That reason alone empowers us to face every tomorrow with hope, knowing whatever touches us passes through His hands, with His permission. It is not God's plan for us to dwell in fear or for fear to rule our lives. He has already set in motion the defeat and fall of every giant we will ever face. Our responsibility is to step through our fear, facing every giant in God's power and with His promises. The Holy Spirit will guide the path of His truth in its destined mark, taking down the giants lurking in each tomorrow!" I think that is something to post on your refrigerator as a reminder for 2012!!!
In Kids Klub, we have been 'driving home the truth' that we can trust God no matter what! I don't know what my year will hold, but I know WHO holds tomorrow. My God is the same yesterday, today and forever..so what is there to fear about the unknown of 2012?
We're looking forward to some awesome opportunities where we can reach out in the name of Jesus in our community for 2012! God bless you this New Year...may the Giver of every good and perfect gift bless you with heaven's blessings!
