Hope Has A Name
Good afternoon friend!
It's Sunday afternoon and I'm wondering what you are doing right now. This is the Lord's day and possibly you were in church this morning and received a good Word regarding the year ahead. Your Pastor may have given you a powerful call regarding how important we each are to grow the church.
Maybe some of his challenge was new to you: It's not about "You"; Our accumulation of "stuff" might be holding us back
on our journey with Christ; It's a spiritual battle; We must be prayer warriors.
So many people are walking in darkness friend. They have searched and searched for an answer to their emptiness and as they looked into the way of the world, instead of the light, their world became darker and darker. Maybe that describes your situation.
I want to encourage your heart today. Their is HOPE.
HE has a name. His name? Savior, Lord, Redeemer, Friend,
JESUS! He's waiting for YOU!
Yes, YOU! He's in the heart changing business!
Will this be the year you will say "Yes, Lord...I need You to lead and guide me; I am sorry for my sins. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross, thank you, that my sins are now forgiven."
I am praying for you....that you will find hope in Christ; you will never be the same.
My sister dreamer and author of "Opening the Door to your God-sized Dream", Holley Gerth has issued a 2014 challenge:
"The concept is simple: I’m asking you to pour out a little love with your words every Wednesday. "
Each week Holley will give us a prompt for our posts. We will share on Facebook and tweet about it and when next Wednesday rolls around, gather together online at the site above to share and discuss together. We'd love you to join the challenge - check it out!
"..One thing I do; forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
