A new year is right around the corner, and, as tradition dictates, that means changes are right around the corner too. With every change, there seems to be at least a hint of hesitation or uncertainty. But, if you allow God to show you His plans for you and to light up the path as you walk, success and awe will be awaiting you at the end of your journey. Then, before you know it, a new journey will begin, and more changes will ensue. As you make your New Year’s plans and resolutions, open your heart and allow the Lord to guide your way. Look first at what changes and plans He has for you, and then you will be able to carry on with sure-footing.
Remember that God is always here for each and every one of us – all you have to do is say this simple prayer:
Lord, I ask for forgiveness of my sins. I welcome you gladly into my heart. Thank you for all of your blessings and for allowing me to live the rest of my life glorifying you. Please guide my path every single step of the way. Amen.
As you enter into this new year, may you keep these scriptures close to you and be encouraged.
