Welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner

January 2019

“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.” Philippians 1:6

The New Year is often filled with excitement of the possibilities 2019 will bring us. We think of ways we want to improve ourselves; whether through a new diet, exercise plan or more education. Many have career aspirations as well as family or financial goals. Whatever it is, 1 January is overflowing with all our endless opportunities for a bright and exciting future.

This is a great time to hold on to this scripture as we work towards our goals further along in the year. Events may change and the enthusiasm that we once had may begin to fad. We should not give up on our goals, dreams or aspirations because they were planted inside us for a reason. Instead, hold on tight, not compromising and remember that if God started it us in; he will see it through to completion. We all were designed for a greater purpose. Happy New Year!
