The Newness of a Year

31 Dec

2022 is upon us—a far cry from the century/decade when I was younger. Advancements in technology, styles of living and the shrinking of a global world and the merging of cultures and beliefs have brought us many gifts and sometimes concerns because change is not always a welcomed commodity.

Let’s face it, is this the world you dreamed of as a youth? As the rapid pace consumes our living, do we embrace or resist the newness and change? I suspect it is a little of both. I shall admit that for me some changes are great, and others are “meh.”

The word of God addresses change–all with a positive twist.

Joshua 1:9 

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Hebrews 13:8 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

2 Corinthians 5:17 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

I especially like the last one–a superb reminder that some changes are awesome!

Here we go! New year– new people to meet and new things to learn, share and do.

Embrace the newness of 2022!
