A "Myan" Happy New Year

A “Myan” Happy New Year
by Carri Pratt
If you are reading this, the world has not ended and we are continuing on in our daily lives unaffected by the Myan calendar.  December 21st has come and gone and a new year has begun.
However, isn’t it possible that God could use this as a wake-up call for us to become  more established in our walk with Him?  In Romans 11:8 we discover that, “As the Scriptures say, “God has put them into a deep sleep. To this day he has shut their eyes so they do not see, and closed their ears so they do not hear.”  Is that us?  Are we going through life with our eyes shut, concentrating so hard on the busy work right in front of us that we are totally asleep to the eternal aspect of our lives and the lives of those around us?
I personally thank God for a godly group of women that surround me, lift me up and keep me motivated and on the track towards His Kingdom.  It is crucial to have Christian  girlfriends that hold you accountable.  I believe what Paul said to Titus applies to us girls as well, “In the same way, encourage the young (women) to live wisely. And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind.” Titus 2:6-7
It is truly time for us not only to evaluate and make necessary changes in our own lives but to reach out and be an encouragement and a role model of Jesus and His love for our  sisters-in-Christ and to those who have not accepted Him yet.
God Bless You and Have a Happy New Year!
