Happy New Year! My focus this year is to pray that 2021 is a year that brings us all closer to Jesus. A year that we use to be about our Father’s business and eagerly await the appearance of Christ! As we walk through 2021 may we commit to spending more time in the Bible. Not just to study it but to let it change us into people that are more like Christ. May we commit to using our hands and feet to serve Him more! May we commit to sharing the gospel in every opportunity that presents itself. Though we don’t know what this year holds, we do know who holds this year in His hand!
I would like to share a scripture with you today. A reminder of sorts, of the fact this earth is not our home. Though trouble may be around us, we can rest in the love of our Father and our Savior here and we have a beautiful mansion prepared for us when our time here is done.
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”~ John 14:1-4
When you’re tempted to stress, fret or panic this year remember Christ’s words. His word never changes and He does not lie. He doesn’t want us stressing or troubling over things that we can’t control. Instead, He would have us lean into Him. Trust Him. Talk to Him and remember that this world is NOT our home.
