Another year comes to a close. I?ll watch newsreels and read stories of the happenings of 2018?some encouraging, many of them sad. For me, it was a year like any other. I discovered more of the need to rely on the Lord. I won?t regret the hardships that found me, or the mistakes I made.
Every year, about the first of December, brightly colored lights begin to appear in yards and on houses. Trees are lit, lamp posts are wrapped with ribbon, and wreaths are placed on doors. It is the celebration of Jesus.
The month of January symbolizes a new start for many. It is the month of New Year’s Resolutions and new beginnings – even planning a new way of life. For the Christian, a new life began with belief in Jesus Christ. January’s devotion centers on Jesus Christ as Savior.
