For I know the plans I have for you", this is the LORD's declaration, "plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
And what better way to go into 2010, than with that hope which He gives us. He doesn't guarantee us an easy ride or even perfect health and circumstances, but He does promise never to leave us and that nothing will separate us from His love. And in the end that's really all that matters.
May you all know His guiding and sustaining hand in all your joys and sorrows throughout the coming new year.
