MANY of us will be glad to see the back of 2020, but even so throughout the year, we have seen some remarkable feats of heroism from all kinds of people both young and old.
Some, like many in the NHS, have given their lives as they have helped those with the virus but sadly have eventually caught it themselves.
Others have gone the ‘extra mile’ in order to raise funds for the NHS and other charities, many of them have been caught in the ‘limelight’ whilst the majority have gone quietly about their work in the background.
Whatever the past year has been to us, we must endeavour to look forward to the New Year with hope and anticipation that it will bring a much better future for us all.
The Wise Men came to Bethlehem to greet the new-born Jesus Christ with gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh that foretold his future.
The baby Jesus, along with Mary and Joseph, did not have a smooth ride in those early years, but the Lord Jesus went that way in order to say that he knows what it is like for us when we face trials in our lives.
Therefore, he can truly say to us, “Bring all your cares to me in prayer in this coming New Year”.
