As the end of the year approaches, you may be consumed with thoughts of what you hoped this year would bring . There may have been some highs, but suddenly you realise you are not where you want to be. You watch as Christmas decorations go up, as friends and family make plans for New Years vacation, and yet the flashing signs of 2019 fill you with dread of yet another unfulfilled year.
Now as you stare at the calendar wish you can turn back time. You feel discouraged and hopeless that it is too late for anything to change. BUT God does not work on a calendar year. What He has started in you, He will surely finish.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
