A NEW YEAR MESSAGE

Happy New year Ozzy Road church.

Let me be the first to wish you a Happy New year 2018. I wonder what you want to say goodbye to from 2017.   Was it a difficult year, painful, stressful? May be you had to move house and in the process of a new start. Isn’t it encouraging that the good news we are never alone and God promises to never leave or forsake us.
We never know what’s around the corner but praise God HE does.

Jeremiah 29 verse 11

“For I know the plans I have for you, “ declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

He alone knows the plans he has for us. Plans for a hope and future…..
Do we make plans? Do we make a list of the things we want to change in our lives? I wonder if we ever ASK God to help us!

On a walk around Markeaton Park with my friend Benji (dog ) I began reflecting on the amazing provision God has already provided for us at Ozzy , what a blessing it is and a sign of his favour on us as a church .

My heart for us is for a fresh outpouring of Gods love all over the church even on those who come in the week.

Also a deeper commitment to stand together shoulders to shoulder to see greater change and growth. We MUST support each other and enjoy each one for the year ahead. Some have lost the true meaning of community. Maybe from pressures at work which have overtaken desire for fellowship.

Let’s all be looking out for one person to help and encourage. Let’s go beyond our comfort zone and be bold in Love.

I pray you all have an amazing 2018 with lots of godly encounters.
God bless.

Carol Harper

I hope to start soaking quiet prayer in the New Year…..
