John 1:1-18
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. 8He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. 9The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

A new year has began, will we be new again too? We stepped over into the new year on January 1, 2012 12AM.

I have been thinking, what does this mean for us?

A bridge from old to new in our life. A new year depends not on the calender nor the clock, it depends on us. Will we make it new, will we see the neighbor, friend, family, homeless in a newer better light when we start over. Will we work with a new beginning, hear each other better, listen, trust anew, hope anew, show good will towards each other anew.

Our future, the new future lies "over Jordan" on the other side of the river. We have to step over the threshold from the old to the new trusting God to be there to protect us from all our inequities and guide us.

I took my step, nothing to fear, just walk on with GOD.....
and never, ever judge someone if you have not walked in their shoes this new year.

Spread the word...until next Monday

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."
