2013 has been a year of blessing for MorningStar. In the midst of the everyday challenges that we faced throughout the year we also saw the grace and power of God on display. As we close out the year, we want to reflect, rejoice, and look ahead to prepare for God’s continuing work in the new year. We find encouragement and hope in this message as we focus on the truth that God is the rewarder of those who earnestly seek Him.
The final woman found in the genealogy of Jesus Christ is Mary. This young girl displays amazing faith and obedience to the Lord as she is faced with what others surely deemed a disgraceful circumstance. While Mary could have been overcome by her situation, instead she chose to praise God and ponder His amazing grace throughout her life.

Two years after the 8 visions Zechariah has we pick up in chapters 7-8 with God’s encouragement to the people to replace their weeping and mourning with celebration and rejoicing.
