Clay in His hand…

malleable to His “grace is sufficient”…

in the newness of “this is the day the Lord has made”…

in the newness of this “year of favor of the Lord”.

Docile to the work of the Holy Spirit…

allowing the embrace of a trust in the “plans for welfare not for woe”…

and armed with “in the joy of the Lord is my strength…

Adventure begins…the PRESENT of His PRESENCE in the PRESENT.

Happy New Year 2014!

At the Gate of the Year…

And I said to the one who stood at the gate of the year…

“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”

And he replied, “Go out into the darkness and put your hand in the hand of God.

That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”

Minnie Haskins

“For I am the Lord,  your God, who grasp your right hand.  It is I who say to you, “Fear not, I will help you.” Is 41: 13

May your journey ahead into the year 2013 always be hand in hand with God. Happy New Year! May God be forever praised!

A New Year’s Prayer
May God make your year a happy one! Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes; Not by making your path easy, But by making you sturdy to travel any path; Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking fear from your heart; Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows; Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, and by making you anxious to be there to help. God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
