Many say ''seeing is believing'' but at Believers Church we have discovered that quite often believing FIRST is the key to seeing!

Too many in our community have lost their hope -- hope for a better life, for a better job or higher wages, for acceptance, for restored relationships. And, in addition, many have lost their faith in God -- a God who created us all and who most of all, LOVES and ACCEPTS us just as we are. Where is the hope for a better life? Where is the hope for eternal life beyond the grave?

Dear Friends, eternal life and an encounter with a living God is ALL of our destinies! Do you have faith to believe this? Or are you waiting to ''see'' evidence before you decide to believe?

Jeremiah 29:11-13 says to us, ''For I know the plans that I have for you,'' declares the Lord, ''Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future. Then you will call upon Me and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and FIND Me when you seek Me with ALL of your heart.''

As you start off your new year, remember that it's full of possibilities and opportunities. Make a decision today to be positive and optimistic about your future. Reach out to our Creator in faith and BELIEVE that God really does know who you are; God really does love you passionately and God really does care about your life. If you will do this, then you will find a new kind of joy for living that springs forth from a HOPE that says, ''God has a plan for me, a good plan, and I'm going to find out what that is and embrace it! I'm going to be just fine!'' In fact, you're going to be great!!!

So start your new year off by taking the time to pray and ask God to be real to you and to reveal His perfect plan for your life. Then live in the HOPE that God will answer you! Believe and you WILL see!

Happy New Year from
