(scripture of the week)
Yet this I call to mind
And therefore I have hope--
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning,
Great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3.21-23)
(Prayer of the week)
Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of another new day and another new year. I open my heart and life to your plan and purpose for my life. Forgive me of failures of the past, and give me new life through the miracle of forgiveness in Christ. Help me to let go of the past and reach out to the promise of the future. Give me power to overcome challenges and to bless all whose lives my path might cross, through your power, Amen!
Open your heart to God’s amazing love!-Pastor TJ
