Too often, we run from challenges. Yet the people we love to read about in the Bible are impressive because they battled challenges.
With the confidence of God’s help, he faced troubles head-on and conquered them. Christ’s promise to Paul and to us,
“My grace is sufficient for you, For My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians12:9.)
Like Paul’s example, in the confidence of God’s care we can say to the next challenge of this New Year 2019,
BRING IT ON.
I do not ask for easy paths.
Along life’s winding roads,
But for the promised grace and strength, to carry all its loads.
If God sends you on stony paths, He will provide you with strong shoes. (Meadows).
Invite God to sail with us, throughout this year 2019, then everything will be all right.
