2014...What Now?
It seems it was just a few short weeks ago that we welcomed in 2013.  Did you keep your New Year's resolutions?  Did you accomplish what you wanted in 2013?  It really doesn't matter now if you did or not.  It is in the past.  You can't change it...but what now?
2014 is sure to bring change to your life.  Some good...some bad...but for sure change. 
That could be a little unsettling if God didn't tell us in Jeremiah 29:11 that He "know the plans He has for us...plans to bless us not to harm us." 
So what now?  We really don't know, but you can be sure it is going to be a blessing.
