Happy New Year!
Below is a message from the Lord:
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11).
This is such good news to start out 2014. What else matters? Nothing going on in your life right now has your heavenly Father stressed out. Everything about you – past, current and future is in His hands. He was there when you came into this world and He will be there when you make your transition from earth to glory. Circumstances change, people change but the one sure thing in your life that will never change is God. You are not walking alone. You even have an advocate who daily prays for you. That is more than enough to jump start you this new year, but if you find yourself not being able to embrace the good that God has in store for you this year, remember the following words taken from Philippians 3:13 “brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”
No one can re-do yesterday; no one has been promised tomorrow so all you have is today. Let go of all the pain, disappointments, failures and negative things that have occurred in your life. Forgive every thing and every one who has ever hurt you and hold your head up and walk right into 2014 knowing that you are a child of the Most High God. Never let go of God’s unchanging hand and you will look back this time next year and say with joy “that was the best year of my life!”
You have a new beginning for a new year. Make the most of every day. Spread the love of God to all that you meet and watch how it will come back to you “pressed down, shaken together and running over.”
