Today, dear friends, we stand upon the verge of the unknown. There lies before us 2015 and we are to go forth and possess it. Who can tell what shall find ? What new experiences, what changes shall come, what new need shall arise.
Yesterday, was stock-taking day. On the 1st of January, 2014, many of us made some resolutions, some had their own bucket lists, others some targets to be achieved. We usually jot these aims, wishes, targets either in our diaries or, if blessed with a good memory, in our minds. All these are connected to the material world. How many of us go through our spiritual layouts, and look for hidden weeds that need to be uprooted, flowers to be put in their place, better our connections with the Supreme Being (GOD) ???????? -Here is a cheering, comforting, gladdening message from our Father, “God cares for each of us, His children. His eyes are upon the year ahead to the ending of the same.”
Today, the 1st of January, 2015, we again look at the introspection we made yesterday. How many in the list have we crossed out, as achieved, how many carried over to be targeted this year ? The number of things to be done are not as important as the ways in which we can become better human beings. The year 2015, is like a land of hills and valleys It is not all smooth, nor all downhill. We need the hills and the valleys too. The hills collect the rain for a hundred fruitful valleys. Today, let us all trust that God will lead us by the hand and so it shall be a BLESSED NEW YEAR (2015) !
He leads us on by paths we did not knowHe leads us, though our steps be slowThough oft we faint and falter on the wayThough storms and darkness obscure the dayYet, when the clouds are gone /We know He leads us on.He leads us on through all the unquiet yearsPast all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fearsHe guides our steps, through all the tangled mazeOf losses, sorrows and over clouded daysWe know His will is doneAnd still He leads us on .
Let us all welcome the New Year with open hearts and arms and greet each with love and happiness. Have a blessed 2015.
