2015 a year of hope?

A new year

Which way are you facing as you begin 2015?

             Some people go forward looking backwards – the past with it’s good and bad preoccupies them. Others are concerned only for the present. Nothing else seems to matter but the circumstances of the present. Yet others go forward looking into the future – some with real hope, others with despair.

     Well a Christian should do all three
·           *Evaluate the past and learn from it, remember the good and be thankful
·            *Consider the opportunities of the moment and seek grace from the Great Shepherd to live a day at a time.
·             *Lift up one’s eyes to the possibilities of tomorrow and with long sighted vision consider what God has in store for those who love Him.
 The Lord Jesus said “ In My Father’s house are many rooms,........... I go to prepare a place for you.

The past can be forgiven.
The present can be committed into the care of the Great Shepherd.
The future is secure in Christ Jesus our Lord.

“The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

May each reader of these articles be blessed this year with the nearness of the Lord, so that in the good times and the difficult times, you will be able to say
“I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me”  Psalm 23
