I know I said that the changes would come after the new year; however, I don't like things to begin in the middle of the week. (I know, a touch OCD.) So we begin with "Message Monday." It is more or less self-explanatory - a message in Scripture, poetry, quotes, lyrics, etc that has stood out to me. As it is New Year's Eve, I thought I would share this pretty quote I found on pinterest.
Try new things
See the good
Say, "I love you" more
Choose to be happy
Forgive more readily
Read more often
Become your best you
"For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.' "
You may know the first verse, but my personal favorite is the last two. He hears our prayers when we call upon Him, and we will seek and find Him when we search with all our heart. It is so incredibly beautiful and precious to me to know that in this chaotic world that He knows the plans and that He listens.
I hope you all have a safe, happy New Year. I pray we (myself especially) turn to God with all our heart.
