New Year Again



New Years Eve.



Like shuffling cards, flipping through the deck, each card contains a memory.  One card steps up with a picture. It’s New Years Eve and I am quite young. My parents are going out;the babysitter is about to arrive. My mom is all dressed up. i run to give her a kiss inhaling the scent of her special perfume; she is careful in hugging for her nails are not quite dry. She is happy; I see the sparkle in her eye. Dad looks handsome and I can see he’s ready for the celebration too.



Flip through some more cards, and my 12 year old self is excited for the party at our house. My best friend is over to spend the night and we are wearing special dresses too. This is a party of my parent’s long time friends and laughter reigns king of the night. Everyone looks pretty and handsome. It’s a time to celebrate the end of one year looking forward to good things happening in the new year.




As I married our celebration became more low key  with gatherings of friends and family and looking at what we are thankful for in the past year, and what changes we want to make in the new. Introspection.









More recent years it has become less celebratory on the eve and more joy in bringing in the new year on January 1. Looking forward to new life in Christ in 2016





With all that’s happening in our world today, tears and fears are flowing, pain and suffering is spreading. We are in the end times now and the battles in the spirit world between good and evil are becoming more fierce and the
fallout is affecting the places where we live now on earth.
Girls and women kidnapped and put into slavery; people are tortured and imprisoned for their faith. Wars are being fought; it is essential that we live our lives close to God
almighty and listen well to His guidance following His Word.






The last day of 2015. The year with its good memories is gone forever. A whole new year lies before us. Even though to me there is some trepidation, You have plans for this year, Lord, significant new strategies for defeating the enemy and drawing new souls to find Your love for them. My new years wish Lord is that You allow me to be a part of it. As Isaiah said, “Send me.”




Isaiah 68:8
[Isaiah’s Commission ]
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

I have such a strong sense that these are the last days, so I ask you to prepare us Lord to carry Your message to where ever we can in this new year. With the end not that far off, many have yet to hear the good news that Jesus has redeemed us, and we can have no fear of death, because He has paid our way into eternity. Guide us Lord in Your will!
