Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

New Year Musings…

“It’s a sad day for all of us!”—a famous quote in our family (from my niece), describes our feeling upon taking down the Christmas decorations.  Do all the joy, peace, and hope go with us into the new year?  If God is with us (Immanuel), surely they will.

What does this new year hold?  I don’t make New Year’s resolutions—they’re too quickly broken.  But these are among the things I pray will happen:

–The salvation of a friend.

–Worldwide turning to the Lord.

–Revival among God’s people.

–More Christ-likeness in myself.

–Courage and joy to face whatever lies ahead in this uncertain world, knowing Who holds my hand.

–Christ’s return!  Maranatha! (Aramaic for ‘Our Lord, come!’ in 1 Corinthians 16:22)  I plan to end my posts this year with this word as a reminder to all of us—to keep looking up and be ready whenever He comes.
