Happy New Year’s Eve!

31 Dec

Nothing beats Skyline Chili:)

Nothing beats Skyline Chili:)  Splurge and Splurge Big…lol:)

As we end the year today, I say ENJOY this last day!
This day counts.
I think of the below verse:

Romans 5:5
“And hope does not disappoint us,
because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit,
whom he has given us.”

Look towards tomorrow with renewed hope from the Lord.
A hope for a new start.
A hope to finish what you started.
A hope for healing.
A hope for not giving up.
A hope for taking on a challenge.
A hope to love those who are not easy to love.

Pray for your friends, family and enemies –
that they too may enter the New Year with the hope that only the Lord provides.

Don’t think you can do this life on your own.
Rest in the arms of Jesus.
Latch onto the love of the Lord.
Seek Him continually with every decision.
Seek Him continually in how you react with every person you come in contact with.

Go BIG or Go Home!
Tell others about His Grace today, tomorrow, and the next.
Jesus loves you – in a major way.
Happy New Year’s Eve!
Love, Sarah

God Moves!

I am so glad Rob's mom and step-dad let me play on their toys:)

I am so glad Rob’s mom and step-dad let me play on their toys:)

As I reflect on the past year, I know one solid for sure thing.
God moves.
He moves in BIG ways.
He moves in small ways.
Just like the equipment above can move earth so easily-with seamless effort,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
moves obstacles in our lives…
He moves hearts…
He changes hearts.
He changes lives!
If you have only one thing to look back on in 2014 –
I hope you see the Lord’s love in your life (even in the dark or sad times).
As you look towards 2015 –
I hope you feel His love with you now going into the New Year.
Ephesians 3:16-19
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
