“… I am the Light of the world …” John 8:12
Today as you stand at the end of one year and the beginning of the next, you are invited to put your hand in the hand of the One who not only bears the light but is the Light. Say goodbye to the old and welcome the new. How does walking into 2018 feel, knowing you are holding the hand of the Son of God, the Good Shepherd, who loves you so much, He gave His life for you? You may not know what 2018 holds, but look back over 2017 and see how He has been with you. A favourite saying of mine (and I don’t know who wrote it) goes: “Be still, my soul, your God does undertake to guide the future as He has the past.”
May God bless you with His promise of His presence in 2018 as you put 2017 behind you and move forward into a brave new year, whatever it may bring.
