"The future awaits." Who came up with that? It might be one of the most popular phrases of all time, but it isn't very sensible. The future doesn't wait for anyone. The future is fluid, not static. It's always in motion. The actions of the present influence the future (and quantum mechanics says the future does influence the past), but that's not the same thing as the future waiting around.
Maybe the guy who coined the phrase was simply telling people to be optimistic and hopeful about the future. You know, "grabbing the bull by the horns" so to speak. (But anyone who's ever been around bulls knows that's not as easy as it seems. You've really got to want it, to make that happen.)
As we transition from 2011 to 2012, the future is on just about every one's mind. Will the economy tank? Will I be able to lose weight this year? Will I get rich? Will I be successful? And on and on.
The one thing that we can be certain of is this: God is sovereign and the future is in His hands.
Happy New Year.
