There is no one like the God of Jeshrurun
Who rides the heavens to your help,
And through the skies in His majesty.
The eternal God is a dwelling place,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
Whatever happens in the year ahead, God is there. Whether it’s a year full of excitement, new beginnings and anticipation, or whether it’s a year already tainted by disappointment and pain, God is there. However raw the emotions we may face, whatever situation may shake us to the core, God goes deeper. He will ride the heavens to help us. We are not alone. Whether it’s explosive joy that we can’t contain, or devastating grief that we can’t put words on, underneath it all we will find God’s everlasting arms supporting, carrying and holding us.
