First things first for the new year


Happy New Year 2017!

What a great time of year to celebrate the Lord’s faithfulness in our lives and invite Him into our 2017 plans!!  Each year when I get a new calendar, I wait to write in it. I like to take time and pray over my upcoming year. I pray that the events, meetings, and activities on my calendar reflect God’s will for my life. I do this because I used to fill my days with pointless activities that were meant to reflect my attachment to the world (and void of any eternal value). Now, I ask myself how I can make a real difference – how I can be intentional about telling someone about Jesus – or at a minimum, showing Jesus’ love to someone else just by my actions. J

I have written down a few verses below that may help you welcome in the New Year! God’s best for you in 2017!


Psalm 95:1-2

Psalm 100:1-3

Romans 15:13

Jeremiah 29:11
