“The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.” Psalm 103:19
This weekend, as I counted down the final minutes of 2011, I remembered to count my blessings. I whispered a quiet goodbye to what had been and embraced the hope of what will be in this new year of 2012.
Over the holidays I was reminded of the perplexities of life. How it can be filled at any given moment with both elation and disappointment, beauty and ugliness, darkness and light. And this is why we need a Savior. To help us focus our eyes and hearts on what is real and true and good.
Sometimes the news headlines can cause us to trade faith for fear, make us forget that God is still in control. I wrote this poem years ago, when I needed to remember that, in spite of what we see in the world around us, there is still hope. That, beyond the noise of this life, the angels still sing.
Just like they did when Christ was born. (Luke 2:13-14)
Just like they are doing now around the throne of God. (Revelation 5:11-12)
Can you hear them?
