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.
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.
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?
