Frances Havergal wrote a wonderful song about the dawning of a new year. The words are from another time, but the sentiment is profoundly timeless.
"Another year is dawning: Dear Master let it be, In working or in waiting, another year for Thee."
This year is about to pick up pace, but it is my prayer that we can make 2017 a year with the Lord. In reality, God is present already, waiting for us to join with Him in what He has planned. It is up to us whether we decide to partner with Jesus.
Let us resolve to make this a Godly year - in working or in waiting - a year for Jesus.
Living in Grace
