2009 has been a year to remember, or maybe to forget. As I'm thinking about the year that is coming to an end, I reflect on it with mixed emotions. The year was very tough for a lot of people. Home foreclosures, unemployment, layoffs, cutbacks, stock market troubles, etc etc etc. But the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
It is THAT HOPE we look to for 2010! We're reminded in Matthew 19:26 "With men this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible." If our hope is in this world, our nations leaders, our jobs....we're sure to be disappointed. But if we trust in the one that IS Hope....then we have a future to look forward to. At a time of year where many reflect on the past year and wonder/worry about the future, think on these things!
And just think about the miracles we've seen at J103. In August the stations future was quite uncertain. But God used His people to turn this ministry around in a truly miraculous way. Thanks again to those of you who played a part in that miracle! Man would have said our situation was impossible...BUT GOD said different!
Finally, I'll leave you with another verse to carry you into 2010
I Corinthians 16:13 "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong!"
Happy New Year from J103. We love you!
