Happy New Year’s Eve Eve
I somehow got my days mixed up and totally missed sending the Thursday email ,if you also get that and wondered what happened.
So a day late, I couldn’t let the year end without connecting with you all.
What a year it has been.
I don’t want to focus on negative, but it has been a hard one for so many.
Our nation is experiencing much division and unrest, as I am sure you have noticed. Not to mention personal sorrows and grief in so many lives.
As a Christian, many of the things I hear and see make my heart sad as we drift farther and farther away from God.
I cannot think of any “resolution” or “goal” or “objective” for the New Year that could be more important than firmly setting our hearts on KNOWING God by reading and studying His Word and then APPLYING it to our daily lives.
If light shines brightest in the darkest places, then let’s make every effort to effectively reflect the LIGHT of Christ in 2017.
We have, each one, been given an area of influence into which we are called to speak HOPE and TRUTH and LIFE.
This world is hungering after spirituality, but needs the Holy Spirit.
You and I are the conduit for His Presence everywhere we go.
Let us determine in our hearts to follow Him, to lift up His Name that all men and women might be drawn to Him this coming year.
God bless each one of you.
I know some of us are weary and beat down.
We are hard pressed, but the Lord promises…
we are not crushed.
I pray for a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit on us.
I pray for God to open doors we thought were closed.
Yes, I even pray for doors to stay shut that should not be opened.
I pray for the Love and Life and Mercy and Grace of Christ to fill each of us as we seek His face DAILY and that the overflow of the JOY of HIS salvation will spill out abundantly on those whose lives we touch as you and I continue to…
journey onward <3
