Have A Happy New Year 2011

Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

The year is almost over, tonight at midnight we will have a whole new year to look forward to, if the lord tarries. We cannot reclaim it or undo it, all the mistakes we made will be forever there, all the accomplishments we made will be in the past now. We cannot rely on the great distance it has brought us. If we see another tomorrow, it will be new day, a new opportunity, and the time to show our faith in Jesus as Lord.  Let's journey forward, knowing that God already knows what our tomorrow will bring, and the great and mighty things his hand is working, I am looking forward to this year, it is that much closer to the time when Jesus comes for his bride, the future and promises will provide us refreshment on our journey there.

God bless you in this new year, may you complete any tasks not finished, and may you bring love, peace, and happiness to all those around you. God bless you my friend, and do have a safe, and prosperous New Year.

Another Year for Thee

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee!

Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast,
Of even deeper trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness,
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence "all the days."

Another year of service,
Of witness to Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
On earth, or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee!

Tomorrow will be 1-1-11 how cool, the year of the ones I see it will be.

Wonderful Wednesday Words

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14:1-3

He's coming back! As much as the world likes to remember Jesus' first coming during the Christmas season, we need to remind them that his Second Coming will be even greater. We want to be prepared, and our lives dedicated to his glory and hearts full of expectation at his coming.

He tells us in Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

He warns us in many of the scriptures to watch and pray, and be ready, we must tell those around us to be ready, and how to be ready, not just saying well you better get saved and be ready is  enough, they do not understand what we mean.

Be plain and explain to them how they can be saved, and what will happen if they do not accept Christ as Saviour, it is our duty as a Christian to tell everyone we meet.
Let us be bold and have a fervent desire this new year to make sure all those around us are safe in the fold. I hope you will join me in the effort.

I pray and hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, and a great time of prayer and fellowship tonight at church. God bless you.

In his Love, Barbara

Monday Madness, NOT...Well Christmas is over, and Sunday is past, today is a day of rest for me, it has been a busy month, and with being sick, and my cyst on the knee, I have had my fill of December for one year, I am happy it is about over.
We had a wonderful Christmas, and spent quality time with friends and family, it was good, I received so many nice gifts, my dear husband got me a new Dell laptop, bright red. Then my son bought me a Oster, I cook and bake so much it was the perfect gift for his mom whom he knows so well, it is so nice and I will certainly enjoy using it. God has blessed us this year, with joy unspeakable, and so much grace and glory, he is the best friend I have ever had, and I so enjoy serving him.
Our church was down yesterday, some out of town, some sick, I am hoping after the first of the year things will pick up, and others will come and join with us, God has to give the increase, we can go on visitation, and invite folks, and tell them about Jesus, but God has to bring them in, we have had some visitors, and praying they come back and spend time with us again, that they will love it there and join in to help serve the lord with us.
I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and that God blesses each of my blogging friends abundantly.
