Yesterday, Today and Forever

Day 8

Lord, for the years your love has kept and guided,
urged and inspired us, cheered us on our way…

… past put behind us, for the future take us:
Lord of our lives, to live for Christ alone.

The start of a new year is filled with a sense of fresh beginning, new hope, perhaps resolutions that things will be different.

As the years roll by life can feel transient, the world changes so quickly, we grow older, there are sad endings as well as joyful beginnings.

Our faith provides a constant security. Christ, who is love, light and life, was present at the creation of the world, is present with us now, and will be present at the end of time.

Amidst change, new dreams, new hopes for this year, each one of us can be assured that whatever lies ahead, we can be certain we are loved by God in Christ, who is behind us, around us, and before us … always.
