    2016 is gone and 2017 is here. It’s hard to believe! What a year we leave behind! What does the year ahead hold? Only the Lord knows. He is in control, no matter how out of control our years may seem to be. Regardless of what the Lord has ahead, we can be intentional in 2017 to not miss the opportunities the Lord has given us.

  • Have you ever driven on an unfamiliar road in a very dense fog?  It was not a very enjoyable experience, was it?

    You were tense and nervous not knowing what was just a few feet in front of you.

    We could compare this experience to where we are today as we have entered a new year.  2017 is cloaked in mystery. We do not know what is out there in the days ahead.  Someone referred to these as “the unopened tomorrows” that only time will reveal.
