NO LIMIT ALPHA-ness!January 1, 2014
"In the beginning God... I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the LORD..." ((Gen. 1a, 3)
There can be no beginning, new or otherwise, without Him Who IS the beginning. I mean this literally. Obviously that may raise questions among those who do not believe but man's myopic loopholes will never render God less than He is. The ‘formess-void’ offered no faith or permission to the radiance of God's genesis. What mattered then is what still matters today, God speaking.
Therefore, as we celebrate our new calendar year, let us look beyond the linear limits of time and focus our devotion upon Him Who daily is Alpha. We will keep in mind that He is Alpha all the day and not just at sunrise. We leave behind crippling habits that mix our perceived limitations with God's infinite and limitless nature. We accomplish this with devotion centered in *knowing HIM better rather than our religious attempts of being better.
Now, may Abba's utterances burst forth within our hearts with all things NEW. LISTEN Up! (*Eph. 1:17 NIV)
PRAYER: Father, thank You for being our New Beginning every moment of every day. Thank You for drawing us beyond the narrow starting gates of times and seasons into the very presence of Your unfailing love. Your loving-kindness is NEW every morning. (Lam. 3:22,23) Energize us with the revelation of the power of Alpha energizing every moment of our days. It is beyond our imagination, Father, but take us there and grant us effectiveness measured by Your goodness rather than anything measured by our limits. Thank You for this new day and this new year. In Jesus’ name, amen.

NEW. A "life~long" word for followers of Christ Jesus.
It is always refreshing to encounter and remember the Goodness of our LORD during our holiday season. We enjoy national holidays set aside for the giving of THANKS and the celebration of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. Awesome. It is even more awesome as it happens upon the threshold of a NEW year. What an excellent way to prepare the heart for new days and new opportunities. Thank YOU, Lord.
Becky and I certainly thank God for each of YOU. Our friends and family, natural and Spiritual are the joy of our life and we are grateful whenever we get to spend time with 'family'!
We pray that as the Year Twelve begins to unfold that our Father in heaven will open to you all that He has in mind for your life and journey in Him. May His heart flood your heart and may all His plans for you succeed. Blessings and love, Leo & Becky
