The New Year is only one sleep away. Are you ready? A New Year is an opportunity to let go of some things and grab onto other things. Going into a New Year involves many emotions. It can feel scary, not knowing what is ahead. It may be a relief to walk into something new with a fresh perspective. You might have reason to celebrate certain accomplishments. Excitement about new opportunities begins to rise. Sadness about aging, saying good-byes, or letting go of various endeavors can be painful. Knowing there will be difficult challenges is sobering. Yet, overall, most people reach forward with hope as one year morphs into another.
I’ve been thinking about miracles. Perhaps you have, too. Maybe you need a miracle right now.
A miracle is hard to wrap your brain around because – well – it’s a miracle! It’s another dimension that slips into your normal dimension.
God always has a plan. Always! In fact, He plans pretty far out. The Scriptures tell us that before He created the world, He already established The Plan of Salvation. He put into motion that Jesus would become the Intermediator: fully man, fully God. Yes, pretty far out – He planned the whole thing.
God has chosen you to be His precious child. His friend. His family heir. You are very special to God – not because of various unique aspects of who you are, but because God decided. God simply loves you – so much!
