Ingredients Needed in 2019

The year of 2018 will end tonight and a bright new year awaits us. We all
wonder what this year will bring. No one except the Good Lord knows. He
has the plans in His Hands. The Bible reassures us the He will be with us.
“Have not I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you where ever you go” Joshua 1:9 If I were planning a meal, I would begin by listing the ingredients needed. As we visit today we are sharing ideas to help us plan for the year ahead. God has required us to include strength and a full heart of courage. We are not to add worry, because He wants us to use the leavening of faith. I have little physical strength, I am a LOL (little old lady), but I do have faith and I will include lots of prayer.
Life goes best when we add lots of prayer. Mother Teresa explains “God speaks in the silence of the heart, listening is the beginning of prayer.” A lot of time when we are preparing something, we forget to add an ingredient or even burn our efforts. Life is like this too. “God answers all prayers but sometime His answer is “no” (Dan Brown). His answer will always be love.
The wonderful thing about 2019 will be that we do not journey into the unknown alone. We will journey forward together in faith, God will be with us. Give yourself to Him and He will fill us up so we can feed those lost and hungry. What a wonderful adventure life is.
Joy! Trudy
