The Best is Yet to Come

I love the idea of a clean slate – a chance to start new and start fresh. This week, as you watch 2022 make its promises, remember Baby New Year borrowed those promises from our God. The God who loves us and wants the very best for us. So, when making our resolutions for this year, let’s keep these scriptures in mind so we don’t drag 2021, or any other year for that matter, into the new one.

The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23

 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back.” Jeremiah 29:11-14

A God that is for me and coaching me with love, changes my view of the possibilities. A God who is for me, listens to me, prepares the very best for me, and coaches me with love changes my view of the possibilities for this new year. How about you? What are some of your unfettered dreams and resolutions for 2022? How can I be praying for you?

We will get through this new year together.

In His Service and at yours!

While serving as the Weekend Experience Pastor at Seacoast Church, I felt God prompting me to share the moments when He would speak His truth into my life through scripture in a way that made sense to me, giving me tangible ways to learn, grow and lead. These promptings turned into weekly emails that I would send my small groups and volunteer teams. I found myself enjoying the process of digging deeper into God’s Word, being stretched by the writing process, and encouraging others in the faith. My lovely wife, Anna, challenged me to begin this blog, so these moments that I have come to call, my “Red-Letter Moments,” can find a home. My prayer is that you will find hope, comfort, and inspiration here, and above all, you will come to know that the God of the universe loves you and desires a personal relationship with you.”
