From KPNR email newsletter of January 3, 2013:
Happy New Year!
However, I believe that if we spend more time with the Lord by praying and reading His Word, this time next year we will say that 2013 was the best year ever. Maybe our circumstances surrounding us may not be the best, but as long as we are walking closely with God, we will have a peace that the Bible says 'passes all understanding'.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6,7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ."
As long as we have Christ in our lives, that is all we need. He will supply our needs.
Susan sings the song, Sustaining Grace. My favorite line in the song says that 'I tried to make that mountain move, but instead He moved in me.' How many times do we try to remove those mountains in our lives and we find ourselves burned out, complacent, and bitter?
We become weary in well doing. However, if we can step back from the situation and allow God to move those mountains for us, our lives will be filled with peace and contentment. Easier said than done, right?? Well, with the Lord's help, we can do it.
PHILIPPIANS 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Let's challenge each other to make the effort to spend more time with our Lord and watch Him do mighty works in our lives. Then, let's have the same conversation this time next year!! I believe we will truly say that we had the best year with the Lord that we've ever had!!!
Twenty-two years ago, New Year's Eve, we dedicated the KPNR group to The Lord. There have been times that we have had adversities and struggles, but also times of great joy and fulfillment. Psalm 31:7 -I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy for thou has considered my trouble, thou hast know my soul in adversities. God IS with us. My prayer is that everyone has a blessed 2013.
It is hard to believe that this weekend will be my 3 year anniversary with KPNR. Time has flown by! Honestly, it has been such a dream come true and I cannot thank you enough for your support and prayers. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us all in 2013, and I want to encourage you to keep pressing on - no matter where you are or what you're doing, give The Lord your BEST!!!!
