Bread for the Journey

It is the last Sunday of the year and it's almost time to ring in the new year..
None of us knows what our future holds but if we put our trust in God we know that we will not go alone..God will be with us each step of our journey. It's also the time of year when people make new year's resolutions. I checked an online dictionary and it gave me this definition of a new year's resolution..'a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year'.
Philipians 3: 13,14
"No dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Jesus Christ, is calling us." (NLT)

I wish you all a hope and peace filled New Year!

  4. I am thankful that I do not know what lies ahead.Had I known last Christmas what 2009 had in store,I could not have taken it.We have made it through by God's grace and He will take us through 2010 as well.

  6. Thank you for the verse you shared this morning. I had to stop and ask God what He wants me to leave behind, and to press on to give my utmost for His highest. Kathy

  7. Ohh... "start doing something good or stop doing something bad"
    I like that definition.

    How often dwelling on the past that we cannot change leads to destructive emotions, but looking forward to what we can yet accomplish is a great hope.

    Thank you, Kathy!!
