I followed the North Star and I found Jesus, and my world changed! It is like love into eternity!
Everybody living knows New Year’s Eve is soon at hand and the ball is about to drop, but I’m sending you all much love and peace during my favorite evening of the year and I feel you with me in spirit.
As we feast with family and friends this holiday season, many will take time to appreciate what we have with one another, whether it is family or friends, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, even someone we are not with, for we all desire intimacy, especially this time of year. Gratitude makes me less materialistic; my life before was all about the red carpets and the runway-work, day in and day out, lasting only so many decades when I made a career from what I knew I had. Yes, I found freedom in letting go of my life and taking control of my future. For the first time, at the age of 57, I’m able to see that my future has many blessings and my New Year’s Resolutions will gain momentum and power as I give them over to the Savior, Jesus.
I’ve learned that Jesus carried a little broken boy for many years, as well as the young man life had left behind who could only dream that God restored his dreams of belonging. Jesus will carry your dreams for the New Year. Trust me, I’m speaking from experience. No matter how old you are, it is never too late to open your mind to the truth that God will give you more than enough this New Year. For myself, I assist the less fortunate. It allows me to open myself to see the man in the mirror, which can be a profound way to remind yourself of your true wealth. I’ve learned never to try and judge the truth of another person’s life. This is serious people, and a problem in our world today for so many who are in social media. Trust is everything.
We each can tackle issues that are sapping the energy out of us and taking spirit right out of our life. This is my reality: never again will I put anything or any person before Jesus Christ, for He is the only thing and the only one I can honestly trust to see me through a new year. My life is all about finding my peace with Jesus. When you find Him, you will be free. Please find a Happy New Year’s Eve with someone you want to share the rest of your life with. He changed mine.
You know, New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday because we all get a fresh start to transform our new year. This year is the first year that my life has been totally Not Average, for I’m opening my life and being vulnerable. This year I am missing the children at the Christmas Box House and the friends and spiritual family I have throughout the state of Utah. They understand my reasons for not being with them, for God has me on a journey where I can only walk by faith. Other cities are not like the Pacific Northwest, so thank the Lord for the gift of learning to adjust my life to meet other people’s needs first. No problem, I’m used to that. Seriously, it is a joy to sacrifice for your brother.
Happy New Year’s Eve, my favorite night of the year and to all the children at the Christmas Box House, may 2017 bring much love and kindness into your life for you deserve nothing but the finest in life.
Prepare for a new year. Just release and let it all go! You’re free to be you, because you are beautiful just the way you are. Enjoy your life this special New Year’s Eve, 2016. All of us broken angels with broken lives send love from Jordan Jantz and his posse of angels, watching over him.
Happy New Year and enjoy life.
