Happy New Year and welcome to Twenty Sixteen! I was cleaning my desk when I saw this Passion card that was made by Ms. Rhiza Oyos of Pursuit Manila. Yes, as I face the new year, I am reminded to do just that – to live a story worth telling. It seems like 2015 slipped away soooo fast! Here I am, thinking of the things that transpired and through it all, I am amazed at how faithful God has been to me and to the lives of the people around me.
I have stories of my past that I am not proud share though they have been an integral part of who I am today. All I can say is God is good, all the time.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. – Psalm 136:1
As I look forward to what 2016 will bring, I would like to share this hymn: “Another Year is Dawning” by Frances R. Havergal.
Another year is dawning: Dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting, Another year with Thee;
Another year of progress, Another year of praise,
Another year of proving, Thy presence all the days.
Another year of mercies, Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness, In the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning, Upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, Of quiet, happy rest.
Another year of service, Of witness for Thy love;
Another year of training, For holier work above.
Another year is dawning; Dear Father, let it be,
On earth or else in heaven, Another year for Thee.
May your days and year be filled with stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness in your life. May you experience His grace through all your highs and lows. Have a wonderdful New Year!
Talk to you later,
