The year is yours. What will you do with it?

The future is where you apply the lessons of the past. Dr.. Lauren Cunning

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:18

hope

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.” 

Emily Dickinson


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29: 11-13

looking ahead

What you have been and done is in the past; it needn’t determine what you will become or do in the future.

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,  I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.… Philippians 3:13

paths & plans

And now from yonder hill the sun’s bright beams
Shine through the mist, and flood the world with light;
The path winds on, leaving our broken dreams
Of tangled briar and brake far out of sight.
The dawn of hope has come our heart to cheer;
The path before us shines in the sun’s ray.
We follow on, into the coming year,
And in hope’s sunshine greet each op’ning day.   ~Lilian Pearce


“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.   Jeremiah 29:11

life

If all you do is look over your shoulder, your past will become your future.

I thought my life was a tragedy until I realized I had choices.
