Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
Let all that you do be done with love.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.(1 Cor 16:13-14,23)
As 2012 draws to a close and we begin a fresh new chapter in the year of 2013, there are many memories that we leave behind, and mixed feelings that we carry in our hearts as we each individually carry over our hopes, worries, and dreams into the new year.
May the Lord guide us along the path according to His plan,
May we run the race with endurance,
May we grow ever bolder, stronger, wiser
May we delight ourselves in Him as we engage in the service of His Kingdom as faithful soldiers of Christ,
May He grant us the desires of our hearts according to His will,
and may we look forward to His coming!
This fervent cry of a pastor takes only 5 minutes to listen view- but it is SO befitting to the dawning of a new year. Let us pray that the Lord will awaken many believers to be on their guard, watch and pray!
