How time flies! We’re already nearing the end of January 2015. I am so thankful for all that God did in 2014 and am expectant for an even greater year in 2015! I am so excited to share with you some of the projects I am involved with throughout the year. I always appreciate your constant prayers and encouragement. Thank you.
At the start of every year, most of us like to write down goals and ‘new year resolutions’ we hope to achieve. However, a lot of the time, our plans don’t turn out exactly the way we want them to. We might experience both small and big bumps along the way. It’s very easy to feel discouraged and defeated. As we begin the year 2015, I want to encourage you today with this scripture from James 1:12:
“Blessed [happy, to be envied] is the man who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and been approved, he will receive [the victor’s] crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him.”
Even when your plans don’t go the way you had hoped, take heart, keep the faith and trust in the One who holds our lives in the very palm of His hands. As this scripture says, once we stand the test, we will receive the victor’s crown of life! I don’t know about you, but I want to run this race with all I have until I receive the victor’s crown of life that He has promised those who love Him.
Bless you my friends!
Till next time xx
