Mary and Joseph

Hope for the New Year

There are places today (governments, nations) in the world where it looks like our God has little leverage and where his people face severe threats.  It is easy for us to make the mistake of thinking that His hands are tied and nothing good can happen.  We can become paralyzed by anxiety and fear the future of our children.  But we don’t need to cross our fingers and hope for the best. When God appears absent, there is hope because he works best in obscurity.
