New Year. New Blog!

Well…it’s that time again. Now that we’ve made it through the holidays, it’s time to think about what’s ahead in 2020! Can you believe it’s 2020?! Sometimes I wish that I could slow things down a bit, don’t you?

I wonder about this coming year and what it will hold for my family, friends, job, country. We are quick to say, “Happy New Year” to others, but in the coming days, we’re going to need more than a fun saying sprinkled with a little hope!

A new year brings a lot of questions: will I still be around this time next year? Will my loved ones (or me) find themselves in a health crisis, a natural disaster, or a terrorist attack! Let’s be real…we all think about that scary stuff from time to time. That’s normal.

But here’s the thing…in the very first chapter of the book of Joshua, we see him taking over for Moses. A little intimidating don’t you think? But God, comes to Joshua and builds him up with these words…

”I’ll be with YOU just like I was with Moses. I will

lead you, guide you, provide and protect you and I will never fail you or forsake you. So…… strong, courageous, unafraid, nor depressed; because I will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1

With God’s help, we all have the ability to truly make this year……….the best ever!
