Happy New Year! I pray great blessings, insight, encouragement, and strengthening for you in the coming year! I firmly believe that 2018 will be a banner year for the body of Christ... if we only listen and obey. In that vein- I wanted to let all my supporters and readers know that I’m going to be taking a break from all my social media for the entire month of January. The Pastors and Elders for our church are leading a church-wide month of fasting and prayer to start off this new year and I wanted to throw all my energy into seeking the Lord during this time. It’s no small thing to go ‘platform dark’ but I trust God will be faithful during this time- both to you and myself as well.
I’ll still be posting in the LIFT! Book Club as our January book is Fervent (all about prayer! There’s still time to join if you’d like.) And I’ll be posting my weekly Holy Beautiful Tuesday articles. But past that, please feel free to enjoy past blogs at www.bethanyldouglas.com for daily encouragement and finding God-stuff.
I would love to have you join me and others in this month of prayer. I will be reading several books about prayer during this time; Fervent as I mentioned in the LIFT! Book Club starts today! Additionally I highly recommend Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbalta and 30 Days to a More Dynamic Prayer Life by John Franklin. Join me if you are so led! I'll be reviewing them all when we're through.
I look forward to seeing you back in February and we can talk about all God is doing!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
May all your old 2017 go away, seek God in the new year for a new you!
