Happy New Year!

During these final hours of 2021, I thought I would just put some thoughts in writing. This has been a challenging year for everyone all over the world. There has been division in this world like I have never seen in my life. There has been tension between people of different ethnicities. There has been tension between the public and the government. There has been tension between employers and employees. There has been much loss in the world this year. People have lost their jobs, their homes, their marriages, their loved ones, and they have been shut out of the church. Devastation and fear have ravaged the world. 2021 was a year full of challenges.

Typically, the start of a new year has been encouraging for most. It is the time of new beginnings. It is the time for another chance. It is the time for a new start. Many people resolve to do better in the new year. Some make it; most do not.

So much has changed in the world but one thing has not changed and will never change and that is the fact that Jesus is still LORD over all! He is still coming back again. He will save you if you call on Him. He wants to deliver those who are in bondage to sin. He wants to heal that broken heart. He wants to bless that shattered life. He wants to hear from those who don’t know Him, and He wants to hear from those of us who do.

Goodbye 2021. There were enough burdens for the entire year, and if we live to see 2022, it will have its share of burdens also. Matthew 6:34b says “...Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Each day we live has its own set of challenges.

I give God glory that He brought us through the challenges of 2021. My soul is blessed that the LORD allowed us to live to see New Years Eve 2021. If He brought us to this point, He can take us into the New Year. Every day that we live is something for which we ought to be grateful. To God be the glory…

Happy New Year believers! If you are reading these words, may God bless you with His richest blessings! If you are not a believer in the LORD Jesus Christ and you are reading these words, my prayer for you is that the Spirit of God will convict your heart. “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” (2 Corinthians 7:10) I pray that God will cause you to repent of your sin and turn to Him. He will not reject you (John 6:37) if you come to Him with a sincere heart. He loves you and wants to save you. Coming to Him is the best choice, because if you reject Him, you will spend all eternity in hell (Mark 9). Confess that Jesus is LORD today (Romans 10:9-10).
