What’s New?

So what are you bringing into the New Year? Are you bringing joy and hope with you? Are you bringing new opportunities and exciting potential to grow in your faith? I hope so.

Because if you are bringing old baggage from 2019, despair and hopelessness, I got bad news for you: 2020 probably isn’t going to be much better.

But this is what a new year and new opportunities offer. And let me tell you something else. You are not alone. You may have tried to tackle 2019 alone, but 2020 doesn’t have to be a solo mission. It can be a team. God is working in you. He wants you to succeed in His mission. Whatever that may be for you may be the question you need to answer in this coming year, but it is a question the Almighty God wants you to answer.

May I suggest first looking in His word. Make each day a commitment to reading His word. The more you read, the better you can hear His voice. The more you pray the better you get at listening.

And you are not alone in this. I too need to work on all of these things in order to make 2020 a better year to see what God wants from me. So may we find together God’s work in us to work out His will for His good.

May God bless you today and everyday. Amen.
