Welcome to 2019. Happy New Year!!
For some I’m sure that the new year means that we just completed another 365 days travelling around the sun.
For others its just a new calendar year and remembering to write ’19 rather than ’18.
However, for all of us the new year signifies new beginnings, fresh starts and new opportunities.
I love the verses from Isaiah 43:19-21 where it says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland….to give drink to my people, my chosen people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise”.
God wants to refresh, rebuild and renew our lives daily so that we can bring worship/praise to Him…as well as be a blessing to other people.
If you’re feeling a little lost in the wilderness or like a barren stream in the wasteland, will you allow the ‘drink’ (of the Holy Spirit) to come and refresh your life as we start a brand new year?
This Sunday the coffee/bagels will be on, all of the Kidzone classes are up and running and our youth program gets going. Our Lifegroups are back on track in preparation to a great new year. We will be starting a brand new sermon series titled….STORIES.
Everyone of us has a story; some good parts, some bad parts, some mediocre parts and some parts “that no one would ever believe”.
Regardless, it’s our story and the incredible thing about our ‘stories’ is that God wants to use them. God wants to use our life experiences, both good and bad to draw people closer to Jesus. (the above verse reminds us that our story will proclaim God’s praise!)
Again, happy New Year; we will see you on Sunday,
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
