As we wrap up with 2012, can you just take a moment to reflect on how the year's events have brought you to today? The trials that have made you stronger, the joys that have blessed you and the faithfulness by God through it all.
Sometimes we are so caught up in tomorrow that we lose the joy of the present day. We often worry about things that never happen. Isn't each and every day a gift to be cherished? I like some days with no rush and no agenda to just enjoy the relaxation of the day.
'Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.' There will always be danger and opposition to the righteous way of living but we must have faith in God's protective hand over us. The main objective of evil is to steal our joy. Don't let yourself be robbed.
