Happy New Year 2018!
I glance down at the corner of my computer screen and see 1/1/2018 below the time. I unlock my phone and see the big 1 on my calendar app. I open up my text messages and see all the texts that say “Happy New Year!!” with celebratory emojis for fun. Everywhere I see the evidence: 2018 has arrived!
There is something bittersweet about saying goodbye to a year, but something even more exciting in experiencing the dawning of a new one. With empty slates, we look forward to the coming year and what all God will do.
One area I cannot wait to see what God does with in 2018 is this blog. What posts will I write? What changes will I make? Only God knows right now. I find it absolutely astounding that God knows every single word I will write on this blog in 2018, even when I myself don’t know that!
So, dear reader, trust Him, because He holds 2018 in His hands. Surrender this coming year to Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11, ESV
Happy New Year!
