Will 2016 Be the Best Year of Your Life?

If you are a regular reader, then you know by now that nearly all of this blog consists of messages that the the Lord speaks to my heart. It is my desire to be present only as a servant, bringing forth to share with you what I believe that He has laid on my heart. I look up scriptures to verify the messages and take delight in the ministry He has called me to.

A few times I have written randomly, from my own heart’s thought, not announcing it as such, for I am certain that you can tell the obvious difference. Last New Years was one of those times and recently as I was looking over some of the past messages I was shocked to read again what I had said. “Hello 2015, I cannot wait to see what you will bring.” I remember the excitement of anticipation for the new year; not a clue that in just five months my husband would be dead.

I am still stunned.

We don’t always know or even have a clue what our life will bring. So busy with today, we often forget just how fleeting and precious this life is. Are you prepared for this year, even if it may be your last? My husband didn’t have time or the mind to change. When we learned of his brain cancer we had four very short and intense months. I gave everything I had in me, poured my life out for him, but it was not in my hands.

Are you ready?

Do you know Jesus?

For in the end, He is all that really matters. Your stuff doesn’t mean anything. You will never see it again or another paycheck in eternity. But you will see Jesus. You will see Him for an embrace or judgement–you choose.

If you don’t know Him, ask Him into your heart. Admit that you have messed up somewhere in your life, just like all the rest of us. We have all failed in one way or another and deep down we all want to do better.

But the fact is that in your own strength, flesh and willpower you can’t; none of us can–we need a Savior. We need Jesus. He exchanged His life for your failure. The price has already been paid and He waits for you to acknowledge it, believe, receive.

Will you ask Him today?

My husband didn’t have another year. He didn’t even have another 1/2 year and I will never forget the look on his face when we learned the terrible news. It is a terrible and painful loss to lose someone you love, but I am forever thankful that, prior to that terrible report, he had already heard the good news–he heard about Jesus. And he is with Him today–with Him for always.

So let’s make 2016 the best year of your life. Be ready, no matter what it brings. There are no guarantees what this year will be; but this is your key–if you receive Jesus–if you believe–you will be–for all eternity.

Ask and believe!

Happy 2016–let’s make it the best year of your life!

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'” John 11:25-26

“-since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins; it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies him who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:23-26

Happy New Year!

Hello 2015!!

I cannot wait to see what you will bring!

May your lives be filled with the fulness of God and the abundant life that His Word promises to them that believe!

God is faithful!!

Receive!

“–that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God.

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:16-21

Happy New Year Everyone!

 

 

Hello 2014!

One year ago today I posted my very first message on Wordscroll.

From that very first post, birthed out of obedience to God’s call on my heart, Wordscroll and all its wonderful readers has been an incredible blessing to me. So far 52 countries have been represented by visitors to this blog. And now I realize that, by the wonders of technology, I am enabled to ‘go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. What an incredible and exciting time we live in. A time we can’t afford to waste!

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Every Christian believer has a calling on their heart from the Lord and the gifting to fulfill that call.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them–” Romans 12:6a

I urge one and all to step out in faith to answer God’s prompting. Do you sense the urgency in the air? There is so much to be done and all are needed to do their part. If you simply take the first step, you will see the next and the Lord will meet your every need–just take that step.

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might–” Ephesians 1:16-19

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so thankful, and I look forward to another great year of service to you, and to our King!
