Moving from one year to a new one is the turning of a page. When you read a book printed on paper or in a Kindle or other such digital device, you read one page at-a-time. Coming to the end of one page, you turn to the next one and leave the last one. I don’t know of anyone, when they’ve taken out the trash, goes back and retrieves it. The same is true coming to the end of one year and entering a new one. It is essential to let go of that last year so that you may be free to enjoy what is coming in the new.
Even though you may have experienced some challenges that tried your faith and tested your ability to cope, it is wise to bless those experiences and not carry them into the new year. In other words, turn the page. Turn your thought to what you want to have, do or be.
Making resolutions is seldom a good idea, but setting intentions or inclinations is. Setting one or more intentions means that you have determined what changes you will make and you will incline your thinking toward those.
All achievement begins in your mind. Prayerfully allow yourself to be divinely guided in choosing your intentions for 2015, begin seeing yourself as achieving your intentions, and then take intelligent, positive action in their direction. By doing this, you will move steadily toward the fulfillment of your desires.
Remember that you have all that is needed to create for yourself, a wonderful New Year. It is God’s power, strength, life, love, wisdom and guidance. Remind yourself every day, THE MARK OF SUCCESS IS UPON ME! – Lovingly, Rev. John
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
– Philippians 4:13
Releasing the past and divinely guided
I move forward into the wonderful
new blessings God has for me.

Golden Keys to Answered Prayers…
Whenever you struggle to let go of something, it is because you may be intent on trying to control or fix it. When you let go, surrendering the challenge to God and let Him be in charge, wonderful miracles happen. Your mind clears, doubt is gone and you enjoy a new peace and confidence. Having let go and let God, you feel an immediate relief and openness to divine guidance. You joyfully give thanks, knowing that God is in charge and all is well.

A Little Humor…
A woman rubbed a lamp and out popped a genie. “Do I get three wishes?” she asked.
“Nope, I’m a one-wish genie. What will it be?”
“See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting so we can have world peace.”
“They’ve been at war thousands of years. I’m not that good.” he said. “What else do you have?”
“Well, I’d love a good man. One who’s considerate, loves kids, likes to cook and doesn’t watch sports all day.”
“Okay,” the genie said with a sigh. “Let me see that map again.” – D. Richards
