IT IS amazing how quickly time has passed since the 2012 Olympics in London and now we are in the last weekend of the Rio 2016 games.
For those who have been ardent viewers ‘glued’ to the television screens it is so different watching it all happen during the night rather than in the daytime as four years ago.
Once again we have seen the tears of joy for the medal winners alongside the tears of sadness for the losers, but in all sports there has to be those who will win and those who lose.
There are many of us who feel that life is like that and we always seem to be on the losing side rather than the other way round.
In the Bible we read of many people who felt like that but when Jesus Christ came into their lives it all changed for the better and they had renewed hope for the future.
There is truth in the old saying, “I do not know what the future holds but I know who holds the future”, which of course refers to God.
It does not mean that we can wake up one day living in a mansion with a Rolls Royce parked in the drive, but it does mean that knowing Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord can give us renewed hope for the future.
My future does not depend on wealth or possessions but in knowing the love of God through his son the Lord Jesus Christ.
