January 2018

Dear Friends,

One thing I always like to do at the start of each new year is to make New Year’s Resolutions. Many of them I am unable to keep, but sometimes I do. Sometimes I am able to keep the resolutions and when I do I find my life much happier.
What New Year’s resolutions have you made for the year 2014? Let me suggest you add the following Christian resolutions to year list:

…Like Paul, forget those things which are behind and press forward.
…Like David, lift up your eyes to the hills from which does your help come.
…Like Abraham, trust the Lord implicitly.
…Like Enoch, walk in daily fellowship with your heavenly Father.
…Like Moses, stand up for what is right and proper.
…Like Job, be patient and faithful in all circumstances.
…Like Joseph, turn your back on all evil advances.
…Like Gideon, advance even when your friends are few assured that God is with you.
…Like Andrew, strive to lead another to Christ.

And as you look to the New Year, my hope and prayer for you is that you will have:

…Enough happiness to keep you sweet.
…Enough hope to keep you happy.
…Enough success to keep you eager.
…Enough friends to give you comfort.
…Enough wealth to meet your needs.
…Enough enthusiasm to make you look forward to tomorrow.
…Enough determination to make each day better than the day before.
…Enough love to make life worth living.

…And the blessed assurance that God will be with you each moment of each day.

God’s richest blessings,
