As we herald the New Year, many of us reflect on what the year 2016 brought and look with hope for what 2017 will bring. For some, 2016 brought with it amazing blessings, answers to prayers and moments of peace. Others have looked over this past year and faced challenges, obstacles and even hardships. My message today is something for all and it is simply this: Whatever happens in your life, I pray and challenge you to let what you know about God outweigh whatever you may be feeling about God.
Over the past few weeks, a song that we sing in The Salvation Army has been circling around in my mind. The chorus goes, "I'm in His hands, whatever the future holds, I'm in His hands. The days I cannot see, have all been planned for me. His way is best you see, I'm in His hands."
