2009- a new year, a new worry???

As a new year begins we look ahead to much that is unknown and even scary. We can get so caught up in what the media is screaming, the election results, the uncertainty of the economy and even our personal relationships. But wait, it doesn't have to be that way. Take a moment to change your worldview, turn it away from your natural instincts and up towards the eternal. To borrow a phrase from our president elect "Change can happen, our time for change has come."
I may not agree exactly with his vision of change but I agree that all of us can use some change. Maybe it is a change of heart, a change of life or a change of relationship. While change is a sure thing in our human experience, sometimes exciting, sometimes scary, one thing is always sure and steadfast. As you start your 2009, meditate on the verse below and let God be your security. He is there for us all, he is in control and he is able to lead us through all the changes we will encounter. May you be encouraged!

"He is your constant source of stability; He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him."
Isaiah 33:6 NET
