On New Year’s Eve I did not make any plans. I had thought about going to see some old friends at another church but this year their New Year’s Eve function was at a Dance Hall and cost $25. I am not a good dancer and don’t really care for it at this stage in my life, so I did not plan to go. I was content to stay home and relax, but God had other plans.
I ended up visiting some friends and getting to know them. We spent a lot of time talking about Jesus and took some time to pray. It was a meaningful evening for me. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate New Year’s than to be with some friends who are new to Christianity and encourage them in their faith. I have often found that it is in the unplanned moments when we follow the leading of the Lord that we experience moments full of the Lord’s presence and discover how He wonderfully arranges appointments for us while we are not aware of it.
