Shining Moments

The clock says only a few more hours of 2012

and I find my heart  beating with excitement and wonder.

Strange isn’t it at my age

to have this sense of excitement?

But like entering a new store

or reading a new book,

or even meeting some new folks

the very sense of newness stirs within me

curiosity and intrigue.

But that is not all.

My heart can sometimes shrink back in fear

longing to remain in the known.

God has promised that He will make all things new. (Rev 21:5)

Now that is what I hunger for.

A ‘fixed situation’ instead of brokenness and pain.

Healing in place of disease.

Refreshment instead of weariness.

Life

and love

and laughter.

Helpless we are without Him

but as we surrender our brokenness to Him

He will give us a new beginning.

Whatever your need today

He is more than able to give you a new beginning.

Now that’s what I anticipate.

A fresh start.

A new plan.

A Waythat works.

So with our hearts focused on Him

having Him as our vision

let’s eagerly embrace 2013.

He longs to give us gifts throughout our life.

Day by day

strength we find to meet our trials here.

Yes, strength and wisdom and help all along the way.

His wonders never cease.

Well, about 13 more hours to go now.

Let’s get down on our knees and worship the Lord of all.

Surrender our brokenness

Pour out our hearts before Him

and listen to His gentle Words of promise.

I am praying for you

that this coming year will be a time of growth for you.

Moving forward

Pressing toward the mark.

Throwing off those weights that continue to drag us down

and receiving grace for the journey.

How about it?

Are you ready?
