Happy New Year!
Wow. 2018 already? Yes, so let’s take a quick trip over the last year before we launch ourselves into dreams for the future.
2017- a year lost in a blur. This time last year, I was in Missouri, cold, snowy, nice Missouri. There I met kind friends and had great times with fond memories. Then it was on to Illinois in March, with more snow and cold, and rain…..BRRRR! But also, I got to see museums and fun places with the family. Indiana came next with warm days, cool days, rainy days, and sunny days through the months of April and May. From the third week of May, to the first week of August there were very little chill times. Between three graduations, moving from California to Texas, and going to conferences those months were a BLUUUUURRRRR. Job hunting, making new friends and saying goodbye to old friends capped off the year of 2017 as one of the BEST years yet.
2018- a year not yet touched. “A year not yet touched? What? You’ve touched it, we’re three days into it already.” Yeah, yeah, I hear you, however 3 from 365 leaves 362 days yet. We haven’t even scratched the surface, to borrow the colloquialism. So, what will this year be? Better than the last? How much of the time will you redeem? (Eph. 5:16) Will you make your days count? I will. God uses us, but only if we WILL. It depends on us, remember, Jesus had to surrender His Will as a man to His Will as The Lord. Churchgoing doesn’t make one any more of a Christian than going to the library makes you a book.
Remember: Who You Are Is What You Are Behind Closed Doors…But If You Always Keep The Doors Open, You’ll Never Meet That Person.
