For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
AS we reflect on 2021 and consider the many ways God has handled our days, we find gratitude to reminded HE IS WITH US. We have never been without the goodness of His mighty love.
Sometimes, we allow worry to dominate our thoughts and lead us far away from remembering to TRUST. But God knows how to handle fear and ready us for what’s to come. He provides courage to do what needs to be done to welcome a heart of calm. He reminds us to remain faithful.
The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3: 5-6 NLT
It can be scary when we face new beginnings. But God has a plan for our days. He helps us find HOPE for the future and be patient along the way. He allows us to experience the power of His love and opens our eyes for Jesus. He helps us focus on finding courage to surrender doubt.
As we prepare to welcome another new year, we must remember GOD TAKES CARE OF US AND THOSE WE LOVE. He will handle our days, give us wisdom to walk in truth and bless us as we EMBRACE a life of fullness. He will reward the love of our faithfulness as we journey with Jesus and pray for our hearts to be renewed.
Oh, how we NEED the love of a faithful friend who will lift the weight from our shoulders and carry what’s been held far too long. Jesus will lead us to the Father and help us recognize the fullness of His love. We don’t have to figure out everything on our own.
God will ready us for new chapters and help us celebrate new beginnings. We ARE covered by mercy and grace. He will see us through 2022! Believe for it! God will ALWAYS take care of us and those we love.

Place JOY in our hearts as we serve You with gladness and find purpose for our lives. We will TRUST in You and find STRENGTH as You take care of each one of us. Thank you for Your many blessings.
