Happy New Year - From Legacy Dad

Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV) “11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Philippians 3:13-14 (ESV) “13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

So what is our challenge for 2015?

  • Calling all Legacy dads:
  • Strain toward the goal (finish well)
  • Press toward walking more with God
  • Lean more on God (Jesus and His Spirit) and less on ourselves
  • Declare God's plan for our lives (and not our own)

0112-top-earth_lightsWhen we work toward the goal of Jesus, we learn to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, then we see more of God's will in our lives and less of our will.

 

Remember, God does have plans for us - really good plans.

 

 

Happy New Year and the best to your and your families in 2015!

Blessings,

Lance & Dante
