Here’s to the Face of Victory!

Hello! How are you? You & I are now in the last week of 2011!

At the end of dinner last night, my daughter Julia said, “Here’s to the bloody, gritty face of victory in 2011!” We laughed and clinked our water glasses together.

Isn’t that true? Victory doesn’t always come with deodorant, big cushions, or lovely background music, does it? And the battles and breakthroughs never seem to shift in and out of our lives as fast as they do in the movies.

Still, for believers, victory is assured. “…Thanks be to God! he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57)

You & I are destined to victory. The footpath will be ‘beautiful and terrible’ no doubt. But there is a piece of advice that has helped me a lot that I’d like to entrust to you. Years ago Hudson Taylor, famed Christian pioneer in China, said:

“It doesn’t matter really how great the pressure is, it only matters where the pressure lies. See to it that it never comes between you and the Lord, then, the greater the pressure, the more it presses you to His breast.”

I will be praying for you as we enter 2012 & will send you a blessing for the new year soon.

In His love and mine,
