No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 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.
-Joshua 1:5-9 (ESV)
There is no excitement in a new year for me. There is excitement in each
day though. For His mercies and lovingkindness is new every morning. I
have no resolution, only to strive for God so whatever may come this
year, may it be His will. I know certain circumstances are only
temporary. "Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not
be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
