E-zine Volume 3, Issue 1

On to 2019

The calendar says another year has passed. We have all known good and bad in 2018. Children have been born and loved ones have passed away. There have been the private highs and lows for all of us. There have also been the world events. Now it is over, and we have begun the journey of 2019. We enter this unknown place trusting God for direction. 

We have a new beginning as 2019 arrives. We take down the tree and other decorations and move on. There are many opportunities to do good in January and February just as in the other 10 months.

There are nursing homes and lonely people and confused kids. A whole generation is growing up with poor role models – cheating athletes, sleazy entertainers and TV non-talents. We can tell people about Christ.

In this, our eight issue, we offer more helpful articles and columns. If we can be of help, please let us know.

Notes on the End of the Year 

It is called the holiday season. November and December give us Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Then January contributes New Year’s Day.

We all know that life goes on with the regular things, but these special days fit into work, church, housework, sports, raising kids, and other activities.

And we are almost at the end of 2018. It has been a year full of big events and some things which seem small. It is the time of year when newspapers, magazines, and networks name their Top Stories of the Year. Of course, God may have a different view about what is important. It is better to see things from God’s view than man’s.

Those of us who serve at Glimpses, who are seeking to bring the best, clearest, most helpful Bible teaching and information to you, ask for your prayers as we launch into our second year of publication.  We have had the assistance of many good writers and photographers. We are seeking to add additional contributors in 2019.

Be sure to check out the books we have available. They are all loaded with Scripture and help Christians understand the teachings of the Bible.

The place where we get ideas for articles and columns is God’s Word, and it will never run dry.

Getting and Sharing Info from God

Summer will soon slip into fall. The air will begin to get a little crisper. People may have hot chocolate and wear sweaters.

We are approaching the season when leaves change, and footballs fill the air and pumpkins show up. And we have Labor Day.

Our challenges and problems do not take holidays or vacations. We all face things every day of the year. So often we ask our neighbor or relative or fellow employee what they think we should do. We may consult a book or a TV personality. Just because someone can get in a costume and mouth a written script and wear makeup, as TV and movie stars do, makes them no authority on our problems. A high school coach I once had always said, “Consider the source.”

We need God and His Word.
This is our sixth issue. If you have not met us before, please take time to read our previous issues. Even if you have seen our publication before, please note that past issues are still available on our website. You will find helpful columns, articles, testimonies, and other features.

We are grateful for our contributors. In this issue, check out all of the solid material we present—and share it with friends and family. God has given us the privilege of sharing truths from the Word.
