I know during this time people can begin to experience sadness and depression. The holidays are not happy for everyone, and for some of us we are experiencing the longer nights of darkness and shorter days of light.
I’ve been finding within recent years that New Year’s has become something really positive for me.
It’s time to reflect on the positive of the year despite the bad.
I’ve had so much stress this year, and a number of things that happened out of my control.
But the beginning of this year was very precious to me because I didn’t know what would happen. I just knew the fear within me, and the uncertainty weighing on my shoulders.
Looking outside the window, and as the rain pelted against the screen, fireworks nearby still rose in the sky. I knew God would do the same. Despite my storms, His light would shine in my darkness.
All I could was lift my hands to God and plead for Him to be there, standing beside me.
And He was, and He is, and He will be.
(NIV) Colossians 4:05, “Make the most of every opportunity.”
What has God gotten you through this year so far?
