An excerpt from Proverbs 3:1-12 (NRSV)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Reflection from Butler Sharpe:
As we look forward to a New Year, a new time (after such an extremely difficult period), let us remember and reflect on the ‘steadfast love’ of our Lord. No matter the time, experience or situation, when we think on our lives, God has always been faithful, loving and true.
He loves us and we can trust him. May we continue our journey, in his Grace.
