New Year, new posts…

So, I have never been too jacked up about New Year’s. I mean, it’s just a day, right? I mean, I never actually feel different from December 31st to January 1st, so what’s the big deal?

But this year, I do feel different. This year I understand that a new year is symbolic of new possibilities and new opportunities and most importantly a clean slate. This year I do see a difference between December 31st and January 1st and even though it’s already the 5th I am still praying for that Happy New Year.

No matter what the circumstances though I have to admit that God is in control and He has ordained everything that has happened will happen.

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

No matter how this year turns out there is something oddly comforting that God has already got it mapped out. And as this chapter continues in Ecclesiastes I know that He has “made all things beautiful in His time…”

I can’t, He must. And He will.
