    Its a new year…a time when we will all likely take a moment here and there to ponder the past year behind us and consider what the New Year will bring. On the worlds scale it has been a troubled year to say the least bringing with it not much hope for the coming year to be of any improvement. However as the world increasingly spins out of control...on our own spiritual journey…we would do well to consider how have we done?   We may ask what have I done that I know clearly The Lord has shown…

  Ever wonder about the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas”…well it is said to be an English Christmas carol. From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.

  How often have our circumstances brought us to the place of doubt…to where is He…does He even care? Difficult times certainly expose whats still in the heart. The gospels tell us there'll always be trouble in this world but James 1:2-3 tells us…”Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.  Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so…

      There is an invisible line that we are called to cross over. Once on the other side…there really is no going back. Interestingly…it isn’t until you have crossed it that the heart is even able to recognize it. Peter in John 6:67-69 puts it this way…”Jesus said to the Twelve, Will you also go away? [And do you too desire to leave Me?] Simon Peter answered, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words (the message) of eternal life. And we have learned to believe and trust, and [more] we have come to know [surely]…
