OFF AND RUNNING IN A NEW YEAR!
I have been deceived and misled! I really did think life would slow down, at least a little, and time would not pass so fast after retirement. However, I have discovered that is not true. It is a fact, time does not stand still, so here we are, off and running on another year! As a matter of fact, with this blog we are almost in the middle of the first month of 2019. The exciting thing about it all is that we are closer to the return of our Lord! What a glorious time that is going to be for every born again, Spirit-filled believer! If you are not ready, do not delay.
With the recent Christmas celebration of His first coming, just like He promised, it should remind us that He has promised to return a second time for His family. What a time that is going to be! Don’t forget, all the signs for His return have all been fulfilled. It could happen at any moment!
I am really excited about a new life changing series from the book of John that begins on Sunday morning, January 13, at 10:00 at Restoration Fellowship Church of Lakeland. The title of this series is “Christ Is The Answer In 2019.” The Apostle John will teach us that Christ is the answer to our discouragement, to our doubt, to our disability, to our desires, to our darkness and to our death. The setting for this entire series is in John 20:30-31. I really do believe this is going to be an exciting journey through John’s gospel!
May your 2019 journey be guided by the Holy Spirit,

Blog 94 for 1-12-2019
Are you? Am I? “LOOKING for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13)?
Have we laid aside every weight and the sin that so easily besets us? Are we “LOOKING unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…"(Hebrews 12:2)?
Are you? Am I? Pursuing peace with all men, and holiness…”LOOKING diligently lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many be defiled”?
LOOKING for the right things is biblical! We are beginning a New Year’s journey. We must keep LOOKING ahead, putting one foot in front of the other, marching forward into the unknown of tomorrow with faith in our “lifetime” faithful Partner, JESUS CHRIST, our LORD.
In Gen.12:1, the Lord said to Abram, “Get thee out of thy country...unto a land that I will shew thee.” Verse 4 tells us that “Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him…” It was a new journey for Abram. He had no idea of the things that would happen along the way; but he kept his eyes focused on the goal. Read of some of the challenges he faced in the following chapters. And don’t overlook the miracles and blessings along the journey.
But, remember, “Tho’ we walk through the valley of the shadow of death…," we have a rear guard. We don’t walk alone. Listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as they sing, “You’ll never walk alone.”
The hymn writer, Wm. A. Ogden wrote these words in 1887,
“I’ve a message from the Lord, Hallelujah! The message unto you I’ll give. 'Tis recorded in His Word, Hallelujah! It is only that you 'LOOK and live.' LOOK and live, my brother (sister), live. LOOK to Jesus now and live. 'Tis recorded in His Word, Hallelujah. It is only that you 'LOOK and live.'”
Keep gazing in the right direction. Keep LOOKING ahead. The future is unknown, but God, as your rear guard, will take care of you in this year’s journey.
My gaze is fixed on JESUS, and my feet are moving. I’m on my way.
