God blessed The Connection with another wonderful year of serving Him and you!
Was every minute Pinterest perfect?
But we learned from our mistakes. We keep on turning to Him and trusting Him. We look for the joy in every situation.
“When troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” James 1:1-4 NLT

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 NIV
And now begins a brand-new year! Can you sense the excitement of what’s to come in 2022? We’ve been feeling for a while that big things were coming. And now we can feel the rumblings of new growth about to spring up.
Here are a few things that are coming in early 2022…
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20
In 2016, four women decided that it was time to begin “something” that would bring together Jesus girls no matter what church they went to. And now, we’re looking toward 2022 and this list of plans and dreams. AND let’s not forget those unexpected “infinitely more” things that God will surprise us with. All I can say is, “Wow! God is good all the time.”
