We kiss the old year goodbye and kick it out of our memories. For some it was a perfectly horrible year. Many people died from the Covid epidemic, businesses were shut down and the American lifestyle was seriously curtailed. Now we have a new year to look forward to. It is the unknown that is scary. Not everybody is hopeful that this new year will be any better. It is unfortunate that people have such short memories. Over the past 50 years, this country has gone up and down so many times, you would think it was a yo-yo. It is true that the loss of so many businesses has change everything. But what of the future? Does new mean better? We as a people are not down for the count until we are died. If you are alive there is hope for the future. All the things that I have learned over the years are not gone. They are still inside my head and heart. I still have skills that I can apply to this world. And if I can apply my skills in this world, I can earn a living and be satisfied. Whether I have all the modern conveniences at my disposal or not. I learned long time ago, that my skills and knowledge will only get me so far. I needed help in my life. You see we are built to have an empty space in our heart that only one person can satisfy. We try to fill that emptiness with booze, sex, power, greed, and every known thing in this world. And guess what, it does not work at all. There is only one thing that will satisfy our lives and that is Jesus Himself. Once you have settled that question, then you can go on to the changes in your life. The New Year is inevitable. It comes around like clockwork. Now what are you going to do this year? Moan and groan about the changes in your life or look forward to a new year hopefully. It is all up to you to make that decision.
I want to wish and pray for you a blessed and Happy New Year.
