At the end of each year we wait with anticipation for the beginning of the next. We may count down to the "ball drop" or ring in the new year with other traditions. As we spend time waiting for the new year, we can also be waiting for the Lord!
Waiting on our own can be lonely and hopeless, but when we wait in God, we know that He is with us. The Lord gives us strength and in our faith we can have courage. We know that with Him, things will work for His purpose in our lives. Whether we are waiting on the promise of a new year or working through other issues in our lives, we can wait for the Lord and in the process find strength and courage!
Wait for the Lord and find strength and courage in Him!
Thank You for the strength and courage that only You can provide. Help me to wait on You and to find all the blessings You have in store for me. In Jesus I pray, amen.
