sheep-blog.jpgThe Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.                          

He makes me lie down in green pastures.                     
He leads me beside still waters.                       

He restores my soul.                              
He leads me in paths of righteousness                       
for his name’s sake.           

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwellin the house of the Lord
forever.

(ESV)

Our Lord and our God. We joy in You. Without Your help we could not face unafraid the year before us.

God stands between the years. The light of His presence is flung across the year to come – the radiance of the Son of Righteousness. Backward, over the past year, is God’s shadow thrown, hiding trouble, sorrow, and disappointment.

Dwell not on the past – only on the present. Only use the past as the trees use God’s sunlight to absorb it, to make from it in after days the warming fire-rays. Store only the blessings from God, the Light of the world. Encourage yourselves by the thoughts of these.

Bury every fear of the future, of poverty for those dear to you, of suffering, of loss, Bury all thought of unkindness and bitterness, all your dislikes, your resentments, your sense of failure, your disappointment in others and in yourselves, your gloom, your despondency, and let us leave them all, buried, and go forward to a new and risen life in Christ!

Remember that you must not see as the world sees. God holds the year in His hand – in trust for you. He will guide you one day at a time. Leave the rest to Him. You must not anticipate the gift by fears or thoughts of the days ahead.

And for each day God shall supply the wisdom and the strength. Trust in Him!

It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22 & 23
