ENDING 2011 ON HIGH NOTE OF PRAISE AND REJOICING
At midnight tonight, we will celebrate the closing of the old and bringing in the new. I know most of you have thought about what this year has meant to you and have begun to make your New Year’s resolutions and plans for the coming year. We all have had to face many trials and tribulations during this past year. However, when we really pause and think on the goodness of what God has done for us, we ought to shout praises from where ever we may be. Knowing in our hearts that it was no body but God that brought us through all the difficult moments we experienced during the entire course of this past year.
Those of us who are believers and who have truly learned to trust lean and depend on God should exhibit for those who have not yet reached the level of maturity to understand how important it is to put all our trust in him, should be bringing in this New Year with absolute joy. We should display a dramatically different responsive to all the events that will be unfolding all around us this New Year’s Eve.
This is a time to renew our faith in the hope that God will bring all things which we believe is good in mankind to its fruitful conclusion. Bells will be ringing, horns will be blowing, lots of hugging, and kissing and good will wishes will be glowing in everyone’s heart. Therefore, I say to each of you, “Rejoice and be happy.” Don’t just pretend to be happy, allow your heart to feel what it has not felt in a very long time. Unwind, and see the possibilities of a brand new you, exploring the possibilities of the greatness that lives within you. Be encouraged, that in 2012 your DREAMS are going to come true. Get up and get out of your comfort zone, put your shouting shoes on. Look around you, see and experience all the joy and happiness that is going on. Now get in the groove and experience your mo-jo working. God is working in you and through you, trying to bring you into the newness of your new life in 2012. He wants you to experience the joy and beauty of your new life that he has blessed you to have in 2012.
NOW REJOICE, and be happy tonight, and throughout this NEW YEAR! I leave you with my peace, it is yours to enjoy. Thank each one of you for all your many prayers and blessing that you have shown this Pastor in 2011. May God continue to bless and multiply each blessing for you and your families in 2012? I remain your brother in CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
