Smile At The Future

Strength and dignity are her clothing. And she smiles at the future
Proverbs 31:25

Tomorrow is the beginning of a whole new year.  We have no idea what it holds.  Only God knows and we must trust Him with our future.

Proverbs tells us that a wise woman smiles at the future ~

She doesn't fear bad news, because she knows that God is on His throne and He is a good God.

She is thankful for the many blessings that she has received and is generous with what she has been given.

She doesn't fret and worry for her children, but trains them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

She doesn't worry about getting old, because she knows this is God's perfect plan for her.

She believes the best and hopes the best for her children and husband, because she has put them in His hands.

She doesn't worry about famine and future events, because she knows that God is her provider.

So as this new year begins, thank God for His many blessings.  Learn to truly love those around you.  Smile and laugh a lot.  Hug your family and friends often.  Enjoy happy times around the dinner table.  Speak words of kindness to others.  Trust God and His promises.  Believe who you are in Christ.  Smile at the future!

Happy New Year!!!
