    Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

    Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 KJV

    “Happy New Year!”
    Jonathan Petersen, Content manager for Bible Gateway

    In our world of murky uncertainty, the stars of the night remind us of God’s incredible handiwork and we can take consolation in these words from the Bible:

    Psalm 139
    You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
    You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
    You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
    Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
    You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
    Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
    If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
    If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
    even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
    If I say, β€œSurely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
    even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.
    For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
    I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
    Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
    How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
    Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sandβ€”
    when I awake, I am still with you.
    Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
    See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

    The sun has broken through and is shining in my home office window. The snow looks glorious…all sparkly (and hopefully melting! LOL!).

    It’s already 2018 in many parts of our world. Oh, Lord, have mercy upon our old world. Give us courage and help us to be obedient, showing Your mercy and love to all, believers and unbelievers alike. Thank You, Lord, for Your goodness, provision, kindness, salvation and redemption. Help us to honor You in 2018. May Your glorious “sun” shine throughout the earth! Amen…So Be It!

    Afternoon everyone! Great posts and pics today! πŸ™‚
    Today’s illustration is by Irving Nurick. Don’t we all look so svelte in our evening attire! (Yeah – right! hahaha! I NEVER looked like these people!)

    The second image – I HAVE NO IDEA who did this or why! Apparently way too much alcohol was involved! I know we all “love” bacon – but not this much! I have no idea what the caption says.

    Just goes to show the weird sense of humor even 100 years ago!
    Be safe everyone! Have a great night!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
