HAPPY NEW YEAR!

P1080917I can’t believe we are at the end of another year. It seems that every year longer I live that those years travel by me all the faster.

2018 has been, in some ways, a hard one. It has also been a good one in many aspects. God has blessed me in many ways. He is always faithful.

Many people make resolutions as the new year comes, but often they are all broken by the end of January. I find it a futile effort.

Our church will be starting the annual 21-day fast this coming Sunday. This is a wonderful way to begin a new year, to seek the Lord for His leading for the weeks and months ahead. Fasting can make us more aware of spiritual things, and provides us with more time to spend in prayer. That means more time to hear from God, too.

What will you do to begin the new year? Do you have any special plans for the coming year? What are your hopes and dreams for 2019?

I pray that you will all have a prosperous and healthy 2019 and that you will find great satisfaction in God and in what He has destined for your life. The happiest years we can have are those in which we are obedient to the Lord and learning to know Him better. The most satisfying years we can have will be in serving God and serving others in whatever capacity He leads. I pray for each of you the fulfillment of God’s plans for your life and a deep satisfaction in serving Him.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. I’m using my new computer now, but it keeps crashing, so don’t know what’s going on. God bless you, Nancy, throughout this new year.

  1. Great post. I agree that we benefit greatly by starting the new year with prayer. God is able. I lean on Him. Wishing you a great new year. —KBS

    • Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Today is our first full day of fasting. I do eat a little, but no real meals. I had a couple of Ryvita crackers at lunch with some cheddar cheese on it. Later I had some soup and a piece of toast. Have spent a lot of time today in prayer. May your 2019 be all you hope it to be. God bless.
