Here’s a shout-out to Courtney, Phili, Methembe, Lise and Jamie who sent in Philippians 4v10-13 (http://bit.ly/18WWis4)

‘this is so relevant for going into a new year with great challenges and new experiences ahead. It reminds us that God has our back, and through him, no years can be too hard’ (Jamie, gr11, Margate)

Awesome passage! Paul is in a tough, scary place too – in prison. He’s lost contact with friends and his death is near:

‘I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation I can do everything through him who gives me strength’

Whether you’re scared, or anxious about the new year, or amped to get going – God will give you strength, just like he always has done for people who learn to be content in Him.

What are you drawing your strength from?
