Starting Points 2011

One of the most amazing things about life is the many and random Starting Points we’re privileged to experience.

There’s the New Year, the new week, the new day, the new hour, the new minute, the next second. The list of Starting Points could fill this page. A birth, a death, a wedding, a race, a graduation; you get my point.

Life is full of Starting Points and for that I am grateful. Because where there’s a Starting Point there’s an ending point. The end of a life, the end of an era, the end of a chapter, the end of a war, the end of oppression, the end of a struggle and so on and so forth. Each ending positioning us on the event horizon of another Starting Point – like it or not.

As we enter this New Year, itself a fresh Starting Point, may God’s amazing grace be present in all you say and do. For in the grace of God lays the key to sustaining and completing what you begin. Be it one single day or a lifetime – His grace IS sufficient as a Starting Point and an ending point.

We’ll never fully understand the power of God’s grace until we get to that ultimate Starting Point of eternity, but until then, may you know that the Starting Point of His grace for you and I began just over 2000 years ago and has yet to succumb time and tension. It just continues to stretch throughout the centuries until its arrival RIGHT HERE and NOW.

There it is, another Starting Point, don’t miss it.

Happy New Year 2011
