New Year; New Hope

Proverbs 3:5,6- Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.

I sit in my office at 7:00 a.m. on December 22nd reflecting on this Scripture.  Friends… Proverbs 3 verses 5 and 6 is my prayer for you in the year 2021.  TRUST in the LORD with all your heart!  The year 2020 has been the most difficult year for many.  It has been the most difficult year for our nation and the entire world over the last century.  This pandemic has changed and affected each and every life in some way.  Even the Church across the world has been affected in ways never seen before.  But as the Church of Jesus Christ, we are to have hope.  We are not to lived defeated.  We are to live out Proverbs 3 verses 5 and 6 in the year 2021.  We are to… “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight”.  That is what we are called to do.  As Christians we must live this out in our lives for a world that is living in fear and is desperately looking for hope.  If we, as Christians, don’t live this out in our own lives nobody else will.  We are called “for such a time as this” to be God’s shining light into a dark world.  Friends, I do not know what 2021 holds for any of us.  But what I do know is that our God will be with us and He will never leave us or forsake us.  For this reason, we are to rejoice!  May God Bless You in 2021.

In Christ’s Love,

Pastor Tom
