Moving Forward Into the New Year
Pastor Adrian Rogers
"Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."-Hosea 6:3
As we approach the coming New Year, you may be wondering what is going to happen.
Years ago, some men were on a leaky old ship in the middle of a rough and stormy sea. One of them asked the captain, "Are we safe?" He said, "Well, the boilers are weak and may explode at any moment. The ship is taking on water. To be very honest with you, we may go up, or we may go down, but at any rate, we are going on."
And that's the way we are as we face this new year. Jesus may come; we may go up. We may die, and go down and then up, but at any rate we are going on.
Reflecting on this past year, allow the Holy Spirit to invade your heart convicting and drawing you to Himself.
Ask for wisdom, courage, and faith to continue on whatever happens this next year!

It's New Year Eve
Today, see if you can stretch your heart
and expand your love so that it touches
not only those whom you can give it easily,
but also those who need it so much.
--Daphne Rose Kingma
"Year by year the complexities
of this spinning world grow more bewildering
and so each year
we need all the more to seek peace and comfort
in the joyful simplicities."
--Woman's Home Companion,
"And now let us welcome the New Year,
Full of things that have never been."
- Rainer Maria Rilke
Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!
