Let's face it; things rarely go the way we expect them to. Such is life. I don't think anyone can deny that these past two years have been... let's say hectic. But let's focus for a moment on all that we have come through. All that we have accomplished. Look where we are. Remember when you didn't know how you'd get through the night? Congratulations, my friend. You've just made it through 365 of them.
I'm not sure what your year looked like, but I'm sure there was stress. I'm sure there were times of joy and laughter, but also times of immense sadness. I also know that God was with you every step of the way. One of my favorite Bible verses comes from Isaiah 41:10.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
In 2021 I got married. I moved across the country. I started a new job. If you had told me three years ago that I'd get married, leave my home state, or have a job that I love, I'd have called you crazy. But here I am. Here you are. Here we are. Maybe your year was jam packed like mine. Maybe it was more so. Either way, God is with us every step of the way. Here's to another crazy, hectic, not-at-all-what-we-expect-it-to-be-but-still-incredible-gift-from-God year. We're going to be ok.
Happy New Year from Hope FM
