Words of Encouragement for the New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!

Often I read something that touches my heart and can't wait to share it with you. As I type it out, I wonder if it will mean the same to you. Perhaps it was something intended for me in that moment and won't touch you in the same way. Nevertheless, in the hope that these verses will minister to you as we sit on the cusp of new year:

"I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and pass on. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil."
Prov. 4: 11-12, 14-15, 25-27

In a world filled with so many frightening and confusing things - these are encouraging words.
