2011 was a PaiNfuL year for many people. I know of so many people who have struggled in incredible ways this past year. People who lost jobs, lost family members, people who were given grim diagnosis’, people whose spouse’s decided they suddenly wanted to call it quits, people whose dreams were dashed.
As the ball dropped on January 1, you may have found yourself relieved that 2011 was over. But maybe you also find yourself ReeLiNg from the aftershock.
WhErE To NoW?
In case that is you and hope seems no where to be found, I would like to share with you a verse I can’t get out of my mind regarding the New Year. It is found in Isaiah 43:18-19:
“FoRgEt the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a NeW thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a WaY in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
2011 may have been your desert, your wasteland, but take HoPe!! 2012 is a new beginning and the WaY-MaKer is making a WaY for you!!
