On the Brink of 2012

It's New Year's Eve; so although the clock strikes midnight every night, today it will usher in a new year.

We're on the brink of the new and unknown.

Does it feel like this? 

 or more like this? As you're just not sure what's ahead...
But what if, as the clock struck midnight, you were cognizant of these truths -

Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, 
your faithfulness to the skies.  
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, 
your justice like the great deep.

O Lord, you preserve both man and beast.
How priceless is your unfailing love!
Both high and low among men find refuge 
in the shadow of your wings.(NIV)

You feed them from the abundance of your own house, 
letting them drink from your rivers of delight.

For you are the fountain of life, 
the light by which we see. (NLT)

Continue your love to those who know you (NIV)
Pour out your unfailing love to those who love you (NLT)
 Ps. 35:5-10

The Lord's lovingkindness indeed never ceases
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
"The Lord is  my portion", says my soul. 
"Therefore I have hope in Him."
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
 to the person who seeks Him.
 Lam. 3:22-25
