Greetings in the precious name of Jesus, I thank God for bringing us through a very eventful year. Many of us will reflect on the last year and concur that ‘had it not been for the Lord on our side we, would not have made it.’ (Psalms 124). As we enter 2023, there have been many predictions of how gloomy things are going to be. However, I will encourage you not to give up. Hard times may come, but we serve a God that is able to take us through the direst of situations. Let us put our trust in Jesus He is the Hope of the world today. Therefore, let us ‘fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal’(2nd Cor 4:18 NIV). Let Jesus guide us as we journey through 2023 with the expectation that He will take us through another year. May the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
