As I considered what my heart needed in this season, and how to anticipate the next year, I kept coming back again and again to this verse:
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:15-17)
If all things are from Him, by Him, and for Him...there is nothing to fear, even when our circumstances are spinning out of control. We can reorient our hearts again as we anticipate the new year. He does - and will continue to - hold all things together, as He holds me and you.
Because of Grace,
