God Is In EVERY Beginning!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
We are creatures of the earth. Yes, but we are so much more than that, but occasionally we need to be reminded that we are creatures of the earth! It’s hard to truly understand existence before time, yet before the beginning of time as we know it, God existed, god was here/there before ANYTHING — he has revealed himself as "I Am," the one who was and who is and who is to come. Before there was an ordered universe to provide the basis of our existence, God is "I Am." He had existence before, beyond, and without our created universe. Do you get that…can you comprehend this in its entirety. WOW! Just try to wrap your mind around this fact! That's why every new beginning — whether it is a day, a week, a month or a year— should begin with God. He alone is the ultimate Genesis. He is our every beginning. On this the first day of a New Year, I want to thank God for His all. He has given me so much. I Thank Him for my family. I Thank Him for my friends. Above all…I Thank Him for His Word…written and His Word made flesh. I Thank Him for new beginnings whether it is a new day or a new year. He was here before we had any firsts of anything. He is the creator of firsts. He is the creator of anything and everything…NEW! So in this New Year I chose to begin it with God and say Thank You! And then, I want to wish each of you my friends…A Happy and Joyous New Year. May God’s Blessings Be Poured Upon You Throughout This Coming Year!

Almighty Creator and God of all of the universe, I praise you for your incomparable power and your incomprehensible glory. As I begin this New Year, I know that my future rests in your will, your grace, and your salvation. Please go with me as I journey toward this future. Please be glorified in the way I live my life today, this year, and for as long as you give me earthly life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Blessing to all of you my friends,

And...Happy New Year!
