A new season
Happy New Year CPC! I hope this time has been one of celebration and renewal for you and your family.
As the new year comes upon us, it’s as though a new season is coming into our lives. With that may come a complex set of feelings and thoughts.
For some enjoyed a season of celebration, a year of favour, and looking towards the new year with excitement. For others it has been a year of loss and tension, one that left you with less than the year began.
In scripture, we are reminded that all these things are within God’s sovereign plans, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens;”Ecclesiastes 3:1。
For as surely as the seasons change, we can be assured that all that is in our lives is within God’s hands. With that in mind, why don’t we do some reflection and offer to God what he has brought in our lives?
Reflect with me on the questions below and take a moment to offer these thoughts to God.
1. What have you lost in the past year?
2. What have God given you grace to overcome?
3. What have you had to persevere though?
4. What is something new you’re looking forward to?
With those things in mind, let’s stay in step with our Lord this year, knowing that whatever is to come, can be given to Him as an offering of worship.
