A new year, a fresh start – a reflective trilogy

Three brief messages may encourage my readers personally, and assist reflection upon your spiritual journey, or your consideration of embarking upon one.:

A long year of increasing difficulties has disappeared and we’re blessed to face a fresh start with their elimination. It was mightily encouraging, therefore, on New Year’s morn’ and our returning to the beginning of daily meditations in Sanctuary by David Strutt, to read his following insight (tap/drag to enlarge):

Next, this by Russ Parker was particularly poignant because I’ve revisited the account of my own journey or pilgrimage – even when I was far away from God – as you will read soon. It opens up the first portion ‘Pilgrim Aspirations’ of Jan-April 2019 issue of Bible Reflections For Older People (publ by Bible Reading Fellowship). Note reference to ‘new journeys’.:

Third, this ‘daily dose’ from David & Emma Stark’s team at Glasgow Prophetic Centre; note, we’re back to one of this blog’s on-going topics, that of Time:


As you enter this new year it may be hard to see that it truly is new and you may even feel trapped in the yester-days and the yester-years. Your calendar feels backwards, with future dates already filled and re-filled with diary entries from the past.Yet the Lord says over you,

“I am the God who creates the days. I am He who exists with Time. I do not give you days without purpose nor do I give you time without fruit. Give Me your minutes and I will add years to you, give Me your seconds and I will multiply them with fruit. You are My child and I will cause you to prosper; you are My gift and I will cause you to bless and to be blessed. I created you by design, lifting you out of obscurity into abundance and now you have the path of plenty for I Am the Light of Life.”

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
