"You shall not go out with haste,....for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard" (Isaiah 52:12).
Are you ready to "go out" into 2014?? You better be because it is upon us!!! "But let us go out with the patient power of knowing that the God of Israel will go before us. Our yesterdays hold broken and irreversible things for us. It is true that we have lost opportunities that will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past rest, but let it rest in the sweet embrace of Christ. Leave the broken, irreversible past in His hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him." (Oswald Chambers). Let us all move forward this year and make sure we guard our hearts with Faith and Love, and protect our minds with the hope of salvation that has come to us by the power of the Holy Spirit with much assurance!! (see 1st Thessalonians 1:6, 5:8). HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! May the Grace of our Lord bless you and be with you, ~Pastor Lynn
