When I reflect upon the new year ahead, I can not help but look back thinking of how I sat thus at the beginning of 2020 as did so many without any thought of what that year would hold. Having said that, I also can not help but think about the fact that although I do not know what my future holds in 2021 just as I did not in 2020, I do know the one who holds my future.
God brought me through 2020, taking care of each and every moment of every day. He guided my steps, protecting me along the way. So as I look toward 2021 and the uncertainties of what it will hold, I am at peace knowing God is in control. I need not try to figure it out or fret over what I need to do to prepare, He is already preparing the way before me, I just need to seek His face allowing Him to work in and through me.
“Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:26-31
