Life in 2023
Life . . . is not a stroll in the park; it’s a patrol in the dark. (Kip Cone, pastor)
While we may often enjoy a stroll in the park when everything seems just right, life isn’t always like that. This year may bring health or financial problems. You may wrestle with a tough job or family conflicts, and fear of an increasing crime rate troubles us all. These are all unknowns, so we need to be on alert, planning well, working hard, and asking God for direction and protection.
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions (Proverbs 27:13). The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? (Psalm 27:1)
