Today is the day! We have a brand new year ahead of us, a year that has the possibility to be filled with peace, promise, hope, and trust in the Almighty God. This is possible only through our God, whose love for you reaches as high as the stars in the sky. With God it is possible to get rid of the weight that entangles you and holds you back from the best life you can have.
There is an amazing, powerful God who wants to give you life to the fullest. At the same time, there is an enemy whose only goal is to steal, kill, and destroy you. However God is All-Powerful, and He overcame the enemy when Jesus died on the cross and rose again. It is because Jesus claimed victory over death that you can walk in freedom and have life!
God is after our hearts. His desire is to have an intimate relationship with you. He doesn’t make it hard to reach Him. Everyone deals with guilt and regret about mistakes and things in the past, so talk to God as openly as if you were talking to a friend. Because no matter what has happened in your life, God will never stop loving you!
God is holding this wonderful gift of life to you…all you need to do is accept it by realizing that God is the perfect King, and you’re in need of someone to save you. Welcome and allow God to be King of your life and to guide you. When you do, you will never be the same.

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10
You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to You. Psalm 86:5
