Can you see it? Look at this photo. It’s just out there in the distance.
No…not the guy walking…or the fishing pole sticking out of the sand, silly….
Out there where the sun is rising on the horizon…
Yes! There it is!! The first new day of the New Year 2010!!
A new day…PRAISE YOU LORD!!
A new year…THANK YOU LORD!!!
So, sweet friends, I’ve just been wondering…
What are your thoughts on this New Year we have all been blessed to behold??
Here are some of mine.
~~~~I am going to strive to live more deeply.~~~~
This past year the roots of my faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and my trust in the truth of His Word have grown so much deeper, and I have to say, it is WONDERFUL!! Abiding in the Vine…there is NOTHING on this earth that can compare!! It is my heart’s desire to see these roots continue to deepen as I commit this New Year and all it holds to the Lord, and seek to walk in His ways.
~~~~I am going to strive to love more fully.~~~~
“A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34
Oh My!! I do love people, but man they can pluck my very last nerve…you know what I mean right? What would Jesus say??? c’mon…you know what He says. Say it with me…
LOVE them ANYWAY. As He has loved me??? He died on the cross for MY SIN so I could LIVE with Him throughout eternity, and I sometimes can’t even handle petty annoyances from the people around me?
I will endeavor to do a better job of loving others as Christ loves me.
~~~~I am going to strive to give more freely.~~~~
…“Freely you have received, freely give” Matt. 10:8
I have received unspeakable JOY, LOVE, PEACE, GRACE, MERCY, STRENGTH, WISDOM, GUIDANCE,AND TENDER LOVINGKINDNESS from my heavenly Father. I will never be able to give as He has given to me, but I will leave this earth one day having given it my BEST shot!!
SPEAKING OF “shots”…I read this quote the other day on someone’s blog and LOVE it! Great one for the new year!
“100 % of the shots you never take will never make it in.” ~~Wayne Gretsky
What are you gals shootin’ for in 2010? do tell!!
Remember, I am committed to praying for you all, so you can always email me any requests you might have. firstname.lastname@example.org I do consider it a privilege to bring your requests to the throne of God!!!
May God draw you each close to Him in this New Year and may you find Him to be your ALL IN ALL.
Loads of Love!
Oh Yeah!! And…
HAPPY NEW YEAR, YA’LL!!
