I have had some extra time this week to talk with God about this year and the year ahead. I know we will all be seeing many blogs writing about the new year and resolutions and I was going to skip it. Then, God guided me to:
“If they, why not I? If these men and women could become saints, why cannot I with the help of Him who is all-powerful?”
– St. Augustine
We live in a hurting world. We live in a country where people are leaving the church in significant numbers. There are many in need. Do people see us driving our, perhaps, fancy car and living in a perhaps, nice area but do not see us helping the neediest among us?
My prayer is that we lift one another up in prayer this weekend to encourage talks with God. Sure it’s a great weekend for bowl games and gatherings and fun but it is also a perfect weekend to talk with God. Give Him thanks and praise! Ask Him where He wants you to be? Who does He want you to help? Who does He want you to meet or be with.
Let us pray!
