10 Encouragements for the New Year!

Here are ten encouragements to inspire you to get a good grip on making improvements in your life this year. You already know these, but if you do them, all your other resolutions should fall into place.

1) Gather up all the negative events of the year now closing: its sins, weaknesses, and failures; its heartaches and griefs. All that filled your year.
2) Lay them at the foot of the Throne. Turn your back on them and leave them all there.
3) Stand bravely at the threshold of this New Year and expect to see it filled with amazing surprises and God’s promises.
4) Walk through the portal of the New Year unburdened, forgiven, and free.

For Today

I am learning... how we have to make time for what is truly important and for me in the new year it will be God,me,Billy,kids, grandkids and then others

One Word 2018

Change is the word I feel the Lord is leading me to in 2018.  Change can be bad, change can be good but change will happen. There are changes I need to make in 2018 and I am looking to the Lord to see what and how this goes.  I appreciate prayers that I will make the ones I need to make.  Prayers that I will accept the things I can not change.  Prayers I will look to and lean on God in these changes.  This is my word and my prayer for 2018! What changes will you be making?   What one word will you choose or accept for 2018?
