The following thoughts came to mind this morning as I awoke to a new year with new opportunities, new challenges and a chance to begin afresh. The expression I used to begin these thoughts might seem inappropriate and offensive to some but that's how last year seemed to be...the "year from hell". I'm fully aware that nothing comes into our lives without having first been filtered by our heavenly Father. It was NOT the "year from hell" because life comes from our God and NOT from the "father of lies". That's just how it seemed at times. Often, as a matter of fact!
Anyhow, here are those thoughts"
The "year from hell"
Did not go well
In many, sundry ways;
Teach me to put the past behind
And hallow future days.
May we make this our prayer as we behind a new year...
"So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12 (ESV)
