Articles and thoughts by Steve Green.
A couple of days before the end of the year I asked a friend, “So, how was 2011 for you?” He replied with a sigh, “I just want 2012 to get here. I’m ready for a smooth, normal year with no bumps.” I laughed. “What is normal?”
Sure, if there have been some huge difficulties, I can understand the desire for a bit of relief. But really, has there ever been a year without surprises, changes, and maybe even some heartache? I don’t think so.
“Till now the Lord has helped us.” We have not reached the end of our journey. ‘Till now’ speaks of more to come. Looking back bolsters our faith and fuels out hope for the future. Just as God has helped us at every critical point in this past year and supplied all that we needed, so He will help us in all that we will encounter this coming year. “Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.”
