Going Into a New Year: Things to Ponder

The New Year is only one sleep away. Are you ready? A New Year is an opportunity to let go of some things and grab onto other things. Going into a New Year involves many emotions.

God Always Has A Plan: What’s Your Part?

God always has a plan. Always! In fact, He plans pretty far out. The Scriptures tell us that before He created the world, He already established The Plan of Salvation.

  • miracles,
  • suffering,
  • sacrifice on the cross,
  • resurrection,

7 Points Confirming God Has Chosen YOU!

God has chosen you to be His precious child. His friend. His family heir. You are very special to God – not because of various unique aspects of who you are, but because God has decided it is so. This eliminates the “performance issues” most people seem to have.

He simply decided you are special to Him.

  • Nothing you did to attract His attention.
  • Nothing extra special you accomplished.
  • Nothing striking about your intelligence.
  • Nothing about your appearance or personality that put you above the crowd.
  • Nothing you get credit for.

What is a “power center?” Most people think of their will only in the context of “willpower.” An example that quickly comes to mind is – having willpower to be on a diet-exercise program. That is a limited use of the word. If you look up “will” in the dictionary, definitions include, determination, motivation, drive, resolve, backbone, spirit, self-control, in addition to willpower. Those words describe a power house, a center of power. Did you know you have one of those?
