Of course, no one knows what we will be looking back on twelve months from now. But we hold on to hope, and well we should. In the book of Hebrews, we read that our hope is an anchor for our souls, firm and secure ( Heb. 6:19). An anchor sounds like a really good thing to have while riding the uneasy seas of this world...but where do we find it? The anchor we need cannot be found in some nebulous, pie-in-the-sky philosophy or in man's wisdom alone. We who have trusted in Christ as our savior know that He is our hope and our anchor. We can step out into this new year with confidence, courage and joy knowing we are anchored to the One who will never fail us.
"Hope is the fuel for the journey from the known to the unknown."
