THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE
It is said that for money you can have everything, but you cannot. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; knowledge, but not wisdom; glitter but not beauty; fun, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; leisure, but not peace. You can have the husk of everything for money, but not the kernel.When I enter the beautiful city and the saints all around me appear, I hope that someone will tell me, “It was you who invited me here.”

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK:
Happy New Year …
Welcome to 2019! Hard to believe that we are beginning another new year. This first year in our new facility just flew by so fast. For many this past year was a mix of joy and sorrow, good times and bad. But we know God was with us all the way. We need to take and keep all that we learned in the old year and throw away the rest. God is faithful and He is already in our 2019!
For me, 2019 is a time of new beginnings. And new beginnings always seem to remind us of our limitations and our need to put our faith and trust in God and God alone, because He is the only one that knows our future and just what we need. He knows the beginning and the end. And although no one knows what 2019 holds for them, we can rest in the love and care of our Father because His plan for us is to bring good and not harm. From ancient times, mankind has measured life in terms of years (Psalm 90:10), so it’s appropriate to take some time each January to ask not only what the new year holds, but who holds the new year.
The new year is time for each of us to set goals. It’s a time to focus on the things we can control: setting and meeting godly expectations for our lives all year long. And we need to approach the coming year with faith instead of fear. We have to stay focus on the plan that God has for each of us. We need to continually seek His voice in our hearts so that we can be living out His will. A.D. 2019 is a lot like A.D. 19-a year in which Jesus Himself was learning to follow the Word of God for His life. As He trusted God the Father, so we too must trust God the Father.
There is just so much that we want to accomplish for the Lord in 2019. We are thinking big and our expectations are high. God has been so good to us and I believe that He wants to do bigger and better things through the Branch of Life this year. But we can’t do it alone. We don’t want to do it alone. We need the love, prayers and support of each and every one of you to accomplish all that God wants from us. And no matter what’s going on in the world around us, in our families, in our communities and in our churches, in uncertain times, we can have certainty because we are children of the Almighty God. Nothing takes God by surprise or happens that He cannot handle. He is our strength and our portion and we should act like it!
So no matter what happens this year, good, bad or ugly, we are going to praise and worship the Lord. No matter what’s going on in our crazy world is irrelevant. God is in charge of all things and He values you and me above all else. And we cannot remain strong without a steady diet of the Bible, prayer and worship. I’m expecting more from myself this year in serving the Lord and I hope you are too. It’s called growth!
A happy, healthy and focused New Year to everyone!
-Pastor Tony Cubello
