And let the peace of Christ, to which you were also called in one body, rule your hearts. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
Colossians 3:15-16 (CSB)
As we take a moment today to look back on 2020 and as we ready ourselves for the new year, let’s take a collective deep breath.
Deep breath in. Deep breath out.
For every pain and every grace you experienced, God has been near. Each tear has been recorded, all the waiting has not been wasted, and God has not left you or abandoned you. So, let the peace of Christ be a balm over your hearts, and let’s repeat these truths from Psalm 145 as we close the chapter on this year:
The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love. (v. 8)
The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does. (v. 13)
The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy. (v. 18-20)
Hallelujah and amen.Leave a Comment
