I love January….such a great reminder that He gives us new mercies…new slates….
I love the start ofa new year! New opportunities, fresh starts…I love it! Now, if it would just warm up around here in New Brunswick, Canada, I would be very thankful, lol!
When I was a little girl in church I heard this line from a hymn…”Though the wrong seem oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.” Many bright days and dark nights have passed since then,yet God’s ever present love is pouring out upon the wounded and hurting saying to them…”If you had been the only one who needed saving I would have died just for you.” Isaiah the prophet told us that there would come a day when darkness would cover the earth, gross darkness the people. He went on…”but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee.” Our focus must not be the darkness, but rather the Lord and His glory. We count it all joy because of what Jesus has done for us. The little ones are with Him and we pray comfort for those left behind.
