I am SO VERY THANKFUL….
I usually take some time at the end of each year to look back at all that has happened since this time last year.
There have been some incredible victories, some rough times, and a few outright heart-breaking losses along the way…but God has been faithful through them all.
I do hope that my yearly goals set the trajectory for each coming year. But, I am even more glad that I can KNOW that the Lord will actively intervene in the struggles that are often our daily reality.
One of my favorite scriptures comes to mind: “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21 NIV).
I want to encourage you today. If you are tired, worn and /or more than a little weary, God is still there. He has not changed. He is still good. He still loves you and is actively working on your behalf.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Rom 8:28).
In the middle of our pain and struggles,
In the middle of our victories and our failures,
In the middle of all the noise in today’s society,
God is still good.
God is still on the throne… he still saves, he still heals, he still comforts. God does not change.
For me, that is what Christmas is all about… God being good to us. I am so thankful Jesus came to save.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a very, very happy New Year!
