Dear Hope. Faith.Love community,
As we all know, Advent comes before the Christmas season. The Christmas season is then followed by New Year celebrations.
In all our celebrations, as part of the festivity, we exchange messages and greetings with friends and our beloved ones. Especially, as Christians, we celebrate the New Year with great enthusiasm, excited by what the Lord may have in store for us.
Toasting glasses at midnight (if still awake) and the fireworks high in the sky depict the New Year celebrations.
These celebrations signal that it is the time to start new and fresh in all parts of life. It is also an opportunity to reflect upon the past and plan for the future. At the start of a New year, we can better ourselves by making relevant changes.
In addition, the New Year also provides a fantastic opportunity to continually meet each other in Church for worship and to encourage one another in our faith journey into the New Year.
New Year is the right time to reschedule everything thoroughly, do better, and be better, to God’s glory.
At the start of the year, it is a time to enjoy the current moment forgetting the past worries of 2022 while looking forward with hope for 2023.
The New Year brings us many opportunities and adventures. On the occasion of the New Year, we say resolutions, get new things, prepare for the year ahead, work on new goals, etc., with expectations.
In the last 12 months, you may have experienced troubles, worries or lost a loved one, as I have.
The size, intensity and nature of your problem are no barriers to God’s healing power as long as your faith in God’s love for you remains intact.
Whatever you may encounter in the next year, Father God will be with you and help you overcome all your problems. God never said that your life’s journey would be easy, but He did say that the arrival would be worthwhile.
God will be with you, giving you peace of mind. So do not be afraid to face a new year.
This New Year has a lot of promises for us. So trust God, and everything will be well!
If God called you to a task in this new year, He would qualify you for the job, so keep trusting God. True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting all your trust and hope in God’s fidelity to His Promises.
True happiness is obtained through acts of kindness filled with love for loved ones, friends, neighbours, and even strangers. Consistent acts of unconditional kindness will ensure that this new year will be filled with many blessings.
With God as our leader, we may be prepared to live another year under His guidance and love.
I hope 2023 gives you immense joy and beautiful moments, creating memories to cherish in your heart.
