Brand New Year

2014. A brand new year. It’s hard to believe, since it seems just a few weeks ago we were worried about the Y2K bug and the end of the world when all of the computers in the world would grind to a halt. Seems humorous now, knowing there is more processing power in the cell phone in my pocket than any of those computers contained.  How many more times have we heard the about the end of all things since then.

The children of Israel were embattled by Babylon and were in the depths of despair from the trouble that surrounded them, much of it of their own making. Then Jeremiah spoke for the Lord. “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not calamity, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart.”

I’m thinking that’s a great way to start a new year. To understand He has a plan for me and has my future in His hands. My only concern is to call upon Him in prayer and seek Him with all of my heart. The One who loved me so much He sent His only Son so that I might have life everlasting.

For 88.3 The Journey, trying to seek Him with all of my heart, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
