Just because we’re saved doesn’t mean life will be a picnic. There are so many trails that each of us endure. It might be financial troubles, it might be sickness or the loss of a loved one, it might be an unwanted houseguest that causes you grief. In the midst of my issues, I am reminded of a song written by Gloria Gaither that says, “Because He lives (and my favorite part) I can face tomorrow… Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Aren’t you comforted to know that no matter what we are facing, we are never alone. God bless you!
Another new year is upon us: a chance for new beginnings. Many people use this time to make changes in their lives and to make resolutions to make the future better. What many people don’t realize is that only Jesus holds our future. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us about starting anew when we are taught: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Let’s help others become brand new this year by sharing the love of Jesus. God bless you!
