By the time you read this newsletter, we will already be at the start of the second month into the new year and for many the New Year’s resolutions will already have been broken!

I wonder if, like myself, you wonder with each new year what will be in store for us during the next twelve months?  One scripture I have been reminded of is Numbers 6:24-236 which speaks of the Lord wanting to bless you, His face shining upon you and being gracious to you and turning His face towards you, and giving you peace.

That’s my prayer for all of us in 2018.  May we all know His blessing, protection, guidance and direction, mercy, continued love and grace as He turns His face towards us and give us His inner peace, which passes all understanding.

The Lord promises to provide this if we do as Jeremiah 29:12-14 tells us: call upon Him through prayer and seek Him with all our hearts, in order words: seek Him with everything we are and have, do this and you will truly be blessed during 2018.
