Blessed New Year!

Blessings To All

Like it or not the New Year is upon us. I am excited about it. I always look forward to a new beginning , forgetting some of the past and moving into the things that are ahead.

I believe that this New Year is going to be a year of opportunity. A time to step out of our comfort zones and into the arms of God as we operate in the faith that we have been given.

Make no mistake about it, faith is still a “GOD Pleaser”. It is still something that He says He will reward. We are told not to cast away our confidence that has great reward.

It is always easier to stay in the boat than to step out on the water and walk. Look at the story Peter had to tell and others told, and we are still telling it many years later.

Some tend to think more on the fact that Peter sunk. I like to think about the fact that He walked first, and He walked last. And when he went down, Jesus was there to left him back up!

Don’t be afraid to step out of your boat this new year with opportunities to trust God. He is still pleased with your faith and trust in Him . He is still one that rewards faith.

May the rest of your days be the best of your days. Blessed New Year!

Word From The Word

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. By the time you get this letter we will be into December 2009 and that just seems unreal doesn’t it.
It sure has been a quick year. We have had a lot of things to happen during the end of 2008 and most of 2009. We have had good things mixed with a lot of “not so good”.

Cheryl went through 10 months of chemo and radiation. She was and is still a Trooper. You can’t tell anything ever happen to her. She is an example of how you can go through and “grow” through a bad situation and come out the Victor!

I had a motorcycle accident November first that sent me to the hospital for two days. I had an ambulance ride that I don’t remember and a ride on a chopper that is pretty faint to. I broke a bunch of stuff and I am still recovering from it speedily!

Didn’t mean to take so much room telling you this but it goes with a message I preached, “The Waiting Process”. We have learned how to wait Scripturally and see God raise us up when things tried to pull us down.

I don’t know what you are going through as you read this but I do know there is a way to Victory and God’s Word when acted upon will bring you out more that a conquer! Our confession is, “the rest of our days are the best of our days!” Please read Isaiah 40:28-31

We pray God’s best over you and from my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
