A NEW YEAR AND A FRESH START!
At the beginning of every year, there seems to be in us a desire to rethink, to take stock and have intentions for things to change! Some make new year's resolutions and for some they are already long since broken! It's as though a new year gives us hope for new possiblities. It's as though we can grasp the nettle and do something about the things we are dissatisfied with in our lives.
As Christians, we believe that Jesus is our source of hope and that even when we break our resolutions and make the same mistake - again, that God is the one who will help us to turn things around. That he has a plan for our lives - that he is indeed making a way in the desert and doing a new thing!
My prayer for you in 2017 is that you will experience God's grace and leading as you trust him with your life and your family for all that's ahead.
God bless you
