This One is Over: welcome 2013

Daily Prompt:  Faithful

This One is Over:   welcome 2013

What a year this has been.  We worried, or not, in 2012 about the following:

  • Public shootings
  • War
  • The presidential election
  • Global climate change (Hurricanes, drought, flooding)
  • Our/world economy
  • Joblessness
  • Taxes
  • GMOs, pesticides, herbicides
  • Health care
  • Multitrillion dollar debt
  • The end of the world

Though not necessarily in that order, and of course, your worries may have varied depending on where you live and what personal adversities you are facing.

Did I miss one? 

As we remember the ugliness of last year and face the unknown events of this coming year I have to wonder…

What worries will you carry with you into 2013?

And I ask:

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”

~Mathew 6:27 NIV~


My Take?

We hear the news and ask:

“What is this world coming to?”

The answer?

“The end.”

We fear not.

We pray and have faith,

for that is our hope.

Rejoicing we lift up our hands and say:

“Hurry your soon coming!”

We live out our days. . .

know not,

yet are assured.
