Singleness doesn’t mean loneliness

Don’t let superstition take you into the new year. Every promise behind that little smooch at the countdown is not only a fantacy, but a lie. Singleness doesn’t mean loneliness. At this year’s countdown: Hold on to Jesus, for He promised never to leave you nor forsake you. Cherish the people He has placed into your life. Build on and invest in the friendships He has gifted you with. Finally, to my friends who are still single – you need to remember, even if there is a special someone with you at the countdown, the kiss of heaven is the only kiss that ensures the blessings you desire for 2016. Happy New Year

Peace on earth goodwill to men

    Hate is not strong enough to mock this song. God is not dead nor does he sleep. Wrong shall fail and right shall prevail. There is hope in the midst of despair. We are grounded, settled and confident in His victory Our hearts are assured by His everlasting love. Darkness is swallowed by the light of the world – Jesus. Peace is springing up in the most devastating places of war and chaos and trouble. The Bells of Christmas Day will be heard far and wide – Peace on earth – goodwill to men.

It’s also amazing to discover that that closed door, (especially when He prayed in the garden of Gethsemane, “take this cup away from me”) led to greater and wider opened doors – even doors that would lead many into the Kingdom of God. Matthew 26:36-46 The Prayer in the Garden Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O …
