Happy New Year from us to you!
Elisabeth Elliott well expresses my thoughts on this New Year's Day.
"New Year's Day is a good time to fix one's eyes on the only One who knows what the year is to hold.......My goal is God Himself - not joy, nor peace, nor even blessing, but Himself, my God. 'Tis His to lead me there, not mine, but His - At any cost, dear Lord, by any road! So faith bounds forward to its goal in God and love can trust her Lord to lead her there; Upheld by Him, my soul is following hard, Till God hath full fulfilled my deepest prayer...."

strength be" Deuteronomy 33:25
