January 2011 Newsletter!

Dear Friends, Greetings in the Lord!  We hope and pray your new year is off to an excellent start and that this will be a great year of joy, peace and blessing in Him.   Here at Travel the Road we are also starting our year with a small change.  We have a new mailing address and PO BOX.

Travel the Road

PO BOX 3330

Monument, CO 80132

You will notice we have made the change to all return envelopes as well, so all future correspondence will arrive at the new location.  The old PO box will still forward letters for some time, so if you sent in a mail in donation recently to the Los Angeles PO box, don’t worry we’ll get it.

This month we would like to talk about the New Year ahead.  It is the time of year when we set goals and strive to reach them.  Many of us in our own life set personal goals of, “getting healthy” “quitting a bad habit” or doing something that will make us a better person.  But for most us we fail to meet these goals and quickly we drudge through another year with little change.  I once heard someone say, “I am pledging to become fat, lazy and unproductive this year”, and then following it with saying, “This way, maybe I will do the opposite, like I always do, and actually accomplish something productive.”  The Apostle Paul says in Romans 7:19 “For the Good that I wish, I do not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish…”  Then in verse 23-25 he says, “But I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind, and making me prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.  Wretched man that I am!  Who will set me free from the body of this death?  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!  So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.”

Many times people will say if you want to keep your goals you have to stay sharp mentally and will yourself to do it.  Well, as all of us know, mentally none of us want to do it.  It is in our nature to choose the lazy path.  So, if this year, you are resolved mentally to do something, that will only last as long as your will power and fade quickly.  What you need is a revelation that you can do these things in Him!  As born again believers we all take on the newness of life in Christ and are recreated.  But, moreover, when we accept our nature in Christ we open the doors to what the word says we can accomplish, Philippians 4:13, Romans 8:37, 1 Corinthians 15:57 ect… we become doers of the word and fulfill the actions we desire to do.  If your Spirit is in control you will do what is right.  The spirit in us conquers when the word becomes truth in our hearts.  John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you.”  Take that scripture and bank on it.  John 15:7 is your key to accomplishing your New Years resolutions.  Abide in Him and have His words abide in you, then you will do the will of God and see amazing changes that will impact the world.

At Travel the Road we have set many goals for this year.  Complete Season 4, begin our next gospel expedition, and expand the reach of the television series as well as much more.  We are resolved in Spirit and have the word as our anchor.  But like all things in the body of Christ we do this together and in partnership.  This is where your prayers and financial giving are critical.  At Travel the Road we are willing and able and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.  We trust our Lord and we trust that God will impress upon you the impact Travel the Road is making globally.  So this year, as you set your goals, please consider giving back if Travel the Road has made an impact in your life.  Together in the Spirit of the Lord we can accomplish much and fulfill the purpose we are sent for.  Peace be with you!

In Him,

Tim and Will
