Final Harvest
Final Harvest is a ladies trio based in Rochester, NY and they still have dates available for 2017!!!! The message of Final Harvest: God will send to His Church an unquenchable fire. The wind of the Holy Spirit will cause it to burn hotter than on the day of Pentecost, and spread rapidly. It will spread with fury and devour all that is not holy. Then He will send the latter rain, wash away the dross, refresh and make new. The Glory of the Lord will be seen by the entire world and manifested through His Church. There begins the end time harvest.

Happy New Year!  Words that, in a few hours, will be said many times in many places.  I expect that I will say those words a few times myself tonight to my friends that I will be celebrating with as the clock strikes midnight and officially ushers in the year of 2017.

This past year has seen many different situations for me.  I have been through some difficult circumstances and I have had some moments of excitement and victory!  I have learned in all those circumstances. The most important thing that I have learned this year is that my worth is not defined by what anyone on this earth thinks of me.  I am sure that all of us know people who like us and those who do not like us.  I am sure there are people out there who can tell stories about us that might embarrass us or make us feel bad.  I am sure we all have friends that will stand up for us in any circumstance.  However, ultimately, the only thing that really matters is our relationship with God.

I am glad to say that I am heading into 2017 as close to God as I have ever been.  I spent the better part of the last half of 2016 reexamining my life, rededicating my life to Jesus Christ and searching the Scriptures for His Will for my life.  I had slipped away from Him.  I admit it.  However, God is a forgiving God and I am pleased to say that I am forgiven and back now and I am excited to see what future God has planned for me in 2017.

I am reminded of a song that was written by Kirk Franklin but has been recorded by several Southern Gospel Artists as well.  The song has meant a lot to me over the years and especially earlier this year.  The song is “My Life Is In Your Hands” and the last verse and chorus goes like this:

“So, when your tests and trials. They seem to get you down. And all your friends and loved ones are nowhere to be found. Remember there's a friend in Jesus who will wipe your tears away and if your heart is broken Just lift your hands and say.

I know that I can make it. I know that I can stand. No matter what may come my way My life is in your hands. With Jesus I can take it. With Him I know I can stand. No matter what may come my way my life is in your hands.”

I wish each of you a Happy New Year and I pray that as you enter 2017 that you have placed your life in God’s Hands!
