At the start of a New Year, it's all about new beginnings. Expectations are high. Resolutions are made. Goals are set. It's a new start. At the same time, the New Year can bring fears and anxieties. Life is still tough. What is it going to bring your way this year? At this time, the teaching of Joshua 1:9 is an instructive and life-changing perspective: "be strong," "be couragous," "do not be frightened," "do not be dismayed." Why? "The Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
