From calendar page to calendar page,
the moments are our lives
and the years are blinks.
And she stood at the sink and looked back at the year just past….
And in a circle of days, all things being from Him and through Him and to Him,
she smiled brave.
Looking back, it had been hard and it had been beautiful and it had been ugly and it had all been grace.
And looking forward, she would smile braver. This would be the year of No Fear. She would murmur it: “Happy No-Fear New Year!”
She preached Gospel to herself:
Sure, Mount Everest might loom in front of you, that mountain you have to climb in the next 364 days.
But the deal is: Every mountain that every Christian ever faces, the Lord levels with sufficient grace: The Lord Will Provide.
You don’t have to climb mountains named I Will Perform.
You don’t have to climb mountains named I Will Produce.
Jesus flattens that mountain before you with His Grace: The Lord will Provide. With enough strength. With enough wisdom. With More Than Enough of Himself.
More important than you trying to muster up sufficient grit and determination for the new year — is that you simply accept His sufficient grace and liberation every day.
She turned to her Farmer and winked what she was going to live: “Happy “No-Fear New Year!”
She stood in the bold light of it:
The future is as bright as the faithfulness of God.
Coming this week, Lord willing:
