I’m sure no one else out there has taken the time to stop and say “Happy New Year 2014” so I’ll go the extra mile and be the first.
Of course I’m kidding. But I didn’t want to be remiss in wishing you a blessed and safe year. I pray that this year many people will come to know, understand, and trust their Creator. And I have faith that no matter what trials and tribulations we may face…we still can always lean on the One who overcame the world. We’re told by God that He gave us a “spirit of power and love and a sound mind”. Fear doesn’t come from God, so don’t let it take root in your life.
When we say “happy new year 2014”, let’s remember that’s a year we’re talking about…not merely a moment. Each year is connected to the one before it and the one after. Time is ongoing, and we don’t have to be defined by the tiny moments, the tiny glimpses of our lives. Identify yourself with the One who created you and knows the number of the hairs on your head. When you’re a child of the one, true, living God, you are bound for an eternal life of freedom.
That beats anything our government, our country, or this world can ever offer.
In Faith, Hope, and Love…
