Remember New Year’s Eve twelve months ago. Amid celebrations and countdowns, many of us went into 2014 believing, hoping, and fully expecting that it would be our best year yet.

One Day


One day, a little child will be able to have a wolf or a leopard or a lion or a bear for a pet. (Isaiah 11:6-9)

The wolf will romp with the lamb, the leopard sleep with the kid.
Calf and lion will eat from the same trough, and a little child will tend them.
Cow and bear will graze the same pasture, their calves and cubs grow up together, and the lion eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will crawl over rattlesnake dens, the toddler stick his hand down the hole of a serpent.
Neither animal nor human will hurt or kill on my holy mountain.
The whole earth will be brimming with knowing God-Alive, a living knowledge of God ocean-deep, ocean-wide.

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!

God already knows what has happened in our pasts, what is currently happening in our presents, and He already knows every single thing that will happen in our future. This knowledge should give us confidence and hope that everything will turn out quite alright.
