Christmas is over and the new year is right around the corner. Now mind you, I LOVE Christmas and the holidays but I'm very ready to be done and get back to my normal routine. With the new year approaching, I feel the need to be better than my last year's normal. Make a resolution? I guess, but many times those resolutions are broken in very short order. A new year, a new start.....correct? Aren't we glad God doesn't need a new year to love us? God's love for us is constant. God doesn't love you more yesterday, today, or tomorrow. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Resolutions and change can be good, but don't change for you. Make a positive change that honors God.
Lifting one another up in prayer is one of the richest experiences we can share. Together, we are strengthened and blessed. When we pray together, not only does it open your heart to the needs of others but it also shows the body of Christ working together and submitting to the will of God. Please remember there is no concern or joy too small for prayer. We will use only your first name and what you are needing prayer for if you choose to disclose that. There is power in prayer! Have a blessed week.
