Thought for the Month

A New Year a New Door!
 

On Sunday 15th December 2019, Georgina
shared with us what she felt the Lord was
telling her regarding stepping over the
threshold of a new doorway, and closing the
door behind all that has been troubling her.
Some of those things may still exist, but we are
to put them behind us and close the door
behind us. I am sure many of us were helped
and inspired by such a thought. I trust it will
inspire any who could not be with us on that
day.

When I was thinking of this, the well know
scripture came to mind, written by Paul, which
is often used at this time of the year:-

Philippians 3:13 to 14 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.

What things will some of us need to forget?
a) Hurtful things people have said.
b) Grudges we have held on to.
c) Disappointments in ourselves and
others.
d) Hardships in our circumstances.

I am sure you can think of more things such as,
fears, worries, unfulfilled dreams, etc. etc.

Why should we let the past, rob us of our
future?

If there are things we can put right, let us do
that, but if things are beyond our control LET
US CLOSE THE DOOR ON THEM.

The Lord is giving us a NEW YEAR, may we also
STEP THROUGH A NEW DOOR, and CLOSE THE
DOOR BEHIND US.
