New beginnings?

New year, new opportunities, new beginnings? Some who are reading these words will be looking to the year ahead with excitement, optimism and high hopes for what is to come. There will be others for whom thoughts of the new year are tinged with sadness, uncertainty or foreboding.

However we may be feeling, the start of a new year does give us opportunity to reflect on our lives and to refocus. Are we going in the right direction, or do we need to make a change of course? Ought we to reassess our priorities?

For each of us, the road ahead is unclear; the unexpected may lie around the corner. Our plans may not come to fruition; our fears may never materialise. Some wise person once said, "We may not know what the future holds, but we know the One who holds the future." My experience is that whatever life throws up, if our hand is in God's hand, he will lead us through.
