When God created the heavens and the earth, He set time primary to provide order in all things.
The cycle of seasons and years are for the purpose of providing goals to set and to finish what has been. It brings new beginning to those who look for another chance and opportunity to do better, achieve greater and become much more than the past.
We have different calendar depending on religious belief and cultural background. Regardless of which one uses, it all has this in common: a beginning and an end. This set of time is followed; people make priorities and organize plans based on it. It also measures the length of time one had spent in this life and with others.
This is one of those which one will give an account on what and how he/she have used them. Someone once say, “It’s not how long you live but how much you gave to make other live”.
Here are some helpful insights as we welcome the New Year:
Finally, no matter what, it’s always he/she who neither gives up nor compromise, who looks ahead with confidence and courage that does and welcomes new opportunities and makes one if needed. Holding on to Him who knew all things and who is able to bring us through no matter what comes our way.
Christ is still the best companion in every endeavor and pursuit in this existence we call life. Again, honor your time and the limited opportunity it brings!
Have a blessed New Year to all!
