A New Year & A Fresh Hope

Check out a special message from our Overflow Pastor, Clay Everett below:

“I love the start of a new year. For me it’s a chance to take a breath, to access where I’ve come from, and look forward to where I’m going. The beginning of 2017 has been no different. As I looked back over last year there are so many things I was grateful for, but also things I hope to do differently or get better at this year…and with those things in mind 2017 is full of hope!

What’s cool is that we have the same opportunity for a fresh hope at Overflow! God was good to us last year, but I believe He has more in store! As I look ahead to this year, and this Spring Semester, here is my hope for Overflow…

My hope for Overflow is that we would be a people who seek after God. That we would be a people who seek to know God better, to trust Him more fully, and to love Him more deeply. I believe this can be true for each of us, whether you feel near to God or far from God. Whether your life is great or if your pain feels unbearable…. God invites each of us to seek Him and He makes this promise:

“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” – Jeremiah 29:13

The Bible tells us that seeking God brings understanding, blessing, refreshing, gladness, reviving, and reward… and these results are not in addition to God, but God Himself. When we seek God, we find that God is the only One able to satisfy every longing of our hearts!

So as we start this new year let’s together make a choice to seek God. Let’s run after God and seek Him as our hope, our righteousness, our source, our life, our refuge and reward! If we do… I believe that we will come to the end of this semester and that we would be able to see some really amazing things that God has done in us and through us!

That is my hope.”
