Greetings my friends. It is Sunday January 01ST 2023, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Let us love our neighbor as ourself.
It’s the start of a brand new year. My hope for you is for 2023 to be greater than 2022.
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold – I am doing a new thing. Now it springs forth. Do you not perceive it ? I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18-19 ESV)
When I was young in the Lord – during the early part of my salvation in Christ – I forgot where I came from. I erased the past – the memories of the good, the bad, and the ugly of my 39 years on this Earth at that point. But as I continued to move forth and mature in my Lord + Savior Jesus Christ – I realized that our God does not want me to (literally) forget the journey of old. He’s doing a new thing for me. He’s made me into a new creation. He wants me to see where I am – versus where I came from – whether it be yesterday, last week, last month, last year, or 17 years ago (before salvation for me). He wants to continue to lead me to His way – which is the only way forth to eternal life with our God.
My hope for you in 2023 is that you will read my testimony, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord + Savior, and honor Him above everyone and everything else.
… for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests – a holy nation – God’s very own possession. As a result – you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9 NLT)

The LORD bless you, and keep you.

The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
