Happy New Year ladies and gentlemen!!! Is anyone else supper excited for what 2019 holds? It’s another opportunity to partner with God and see His power and faithfulness in our life and the lives of others. I love the quote by C.S. Lewis that says ‘There are far better things ahead than anything we leave behind.” It is good to keep quotes like this near our hearts because you never know when God will call you out to the unfamiliar.
It’s human nature to prefer comfort over inconvenience or the unknown. I want to encourage you today to trust God even when you don’t have all the answers. Trust in His sovereignty. Let go when God nudges you to let go. Sometimes you will have to let go of friendships, lovers, jobs, etc. Whenever you become faced with the fear and the struggle to let go I ask that you take it to the Lord in prayer just as the song says.
Just like you I’ve had questions that haven’t been answered yet, but I came to the conclusion that I cannot afford to forfeit my joy and my peace. Neither can you. It’s the joy of the Lord that is our strength. So say farewell to past seasons that have come and gone. Let go of what is in your hands so the better things you can receive from God.
