What will you hold?
What new opportunities will be mine to explore?
What responsibilities will I fulfill?
Which tasks will I do?
Which will I leave undone?
How will I live out my priorities today?
How will I honour my God? bless my family? serve the world?
What will make me smile? cry? gasp?
What doors will fling open?
What ones will remain barred?
What steps forward will I take – even though I don’t know what lies ahead?
Will I be strong enough to refuse to retreat?
Whatever you hold in store, may I face it head-on…filled with joy, thanksgiving, and determination.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV).
