Thoughts on Today's Verse...

From beginning to end, our God is with us! What is there for us to fear? What can happen that can change this one undeniable reality? We belong to the God who is always there, who always cares for us, and who will always work to bring us life and salvation! No matter what happens to us tomorrow, the next day, or the one after that, our destiny lies with the "Alpha and Omega" who lives from beginning to end and secures life for us that never ends.

My Prayer...

Father God, thank you for the blessings of this past year. Please guide me as I seek to use your blessings in the coming year. Inspire my confidence about your future for me and fill me with joy because of your salvation. For all that has been good, holy, and gracious, I give you thanks and praise. For all the ways I've sinned, failed, or stumbled, I ask for your forgiveness. And for tomorrow, and another new day and another new year, I wait with anticipation and gladness, for I know that I will see them come or I will be at home with you where days and years no longer matter. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
