Witness Him Now
Happy New Year to all of you! May the Lord bless you this 2014. I pray that the Lord would teach you HIS ways that you may live according to HIS truth and that HE would grant you purity of heart so that you may honor HIM. In Jesus Name.
This year I decided not to do a New Years resolution. I looked up the statistics. Here goes.. 50% of resolution-makers fail by the end of January and 9 out of 10 quit by March. So I prayed and prayed about it and God asked me to pick one word for the year. One Word. This word could be anything, the fruits of the sprit, integrity, ect ect.
For some reason right when I began to pray CONTROL, popped in my mind. No!! I told God this can't be my word. Haha! So I thought of all these other cool words like compassion, friendship, love and then I went to sleep. I woke up this morning and prayed like I do every morning and I was anxious to tell God the words that I had come up with. I couldn't remember any word except CONTROL. So needless to say, the Lord chose my word for me.
I can't wait to see the journey he takes me on this year through the word CONTROL. I understand there will be many lessons through this word. I have struggled with CONTROL my whole life. But let the battle begin, I know God always wins and he will come out on top this year! I pray that this word will strengthen my relationship with my Savior and that it will produce many fruits and grow me spiritually. Thank you Jesus for just one word.
