Blessed New Year

The start of the new year would be the perfect time to pause and acknowledge that everything that happens to us, happens for a reason. "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)

As I reminisce on the the year that has passed and think of the things in store for me this 2009, a song popped in my head, "... I know who holds the future, and I know He holds my hands. With God things don't just happen, everything by Him is planned. As I face the future, with its problems big and small, I trust the God of miracles, to Him I give my all."

Wherever we are in life right now, we must give thanks for we know that all things are in His good and gracious hands.

A blessed 2009 to us all!
