Preparation for December 30, 2018
This Sunday, December 30th, we will get ready to welcome in a new year.
Every year we make promises, resolutions and changes within our self to embrace the coming year. Why? Because we want to better ourselves and steer ourselves on track with a good and healthy life. Why do we wait for January 1st? Why not start every day with new life?
The biggest hang ups that we have are anxiety and stress, the false perception that we need to be perfect in a not so perfect world, and that if we don't have control we will not meet a life worthwhile. However, what if we gave it all to God? What if we looked at each day with the enthusiasm that we look at in our new year, but with the acceptance that this is God's design not ours? What if instead of just trying to find happiness, we found joy?
We will look at examples in Philippians 4:6-7, Genesis 12:1-3, and end in what really is at stake in our short but complicated lives, gratitude, Psalms 103:1-5.
Let's do this together, this Sunday. To JOY!
