A Hopeful New Year

With all the turmoil, how many took notice that 2020 was a leap year?

In less eventful times, leap years are usually more frequently commented upon. As this particularly painful leap year comes to a close, most of us are ready to leap off of it and into the New Year, shaking off the dust of this past 366 days as quickly as possible.

Although many fear the unknown future, just about everyone hopes that 2021 will be better.

If we have hope, we can face uncertainties. Without hope we fall into despair.

Today as we step into our new year, we must cling to the promises of God.

 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)

Putting our faith, our trust, in people or institutions, or even in our own abilities, is a recipe for disappointment.

For every Christian, this year’s resolution should be to strengthen our trust God, through prayer, fellowship with other believers, and by studying His Word.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Romans 12:12 (ESV)

Best wishes for a Happy, Hopeful New Year!
