Beautiful flowers and wide open spaces! Clear skies and warm air; this is not a dream, but it seems like one to me. New York is not there yet, but wait a while, and it will be.  Change is something that  we can count on, almost. It is the unknown in the future that scares us!

Thankfully the Bible tells us that He is in the future, and He is in our hear and now. He doesn't dwell in the past. His perspective is forward march! He tells us to look ahead, not downward, but upward and onward! His plans do not include retirement, but perhaps a different path.

Can you imagine what life would be like without the grace of God on your life? Fear would enter in, and try to rule over you. Change can cause fear as well, but knowing that Jesus holds our future means that we can walk in peace and confidence.

 God gave me the verse below when I was expecting my forth child. I was concerned about how to get my children off the school bus, and take care of them if I went into labor at that time. It seems a little silly now, but it was real at the time. As I recited the first part of this verse, peace swept over me like a warm breeze, and I never thought about it again. There is power in God's word to deliver, and set us free! By the way, I went into labor about the time the bus would have come, but I had a baby-sitter take them that day to the school fair. How good is God to change circumstances to benefit us!

"My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.   {Psalm 31:15}
