Baptist Home Family,
Welcome to 2022! Wow! Just when you got use to writing 2021, now we have to change.
Yesterday one of our preschoolers sat down beside Tammie and I, and Tammie said to him, “Happy
New Year!” He responded what kind of new year is it? Wow! That’s a good question, “What kind of
new year is it?” Well, if you listen to the news the prediction is grim. More Covid, more shut downs,
more shots, more inflation, more storms, more war, more bloodshed, more uncertainty, more taxes,
more wasteful government spending… in that line of thinking what kind of year will it be?
But, if you Listen to the word of God, there is the promise of His presence for “He will never leave us
nor forsake us.” There’s the promise of His provisions, “My God shall supply all your needs according
to His riches in glory.” There’s the promise of His peace, “peace I leave with you. My peace I give to
you, not as the world gives do I give to you, let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
There is also the promise to prepare place for you at His coming, “And if I go to prepare a place for
you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.”
With those and so many more promises from the word of God, we can step into this New Year with
great confidence and assurance that our God never fails, that He has a plan and purpose for our lives
and for His church. But also, I want to challenge you to let this be our goal at Baptist Home Church …
let us continue to pray and continue to ask the Lord, “What would you have me do?” As you know that
simple prayer has allowed us to see great things done for God.
My prayer is as we move forward in faith, as we pray and listen, that we, as people of God, will discover
what it is … that we will trust Him for the provision … walk with Him in the power … and praise Him
in the pathways that He will lead us on. Let us move forward in faith … let us reach up in praise … and
let us reach out in the love of God and see many victories for Christ.
God bless you for all you do in the Kingdom of God and, “Thank You” for the privilege to be your
See you this Lord’s Day with your Bible in hand and a friend by your side!
God Bless,
Pastor David Jones
