I’ve prayed about what I could possibly say to inspire us into 2012 with passion for the Lord and faith that moves mountains. But part of me sighs because I know what will happen. We get all fired up for this fresh start and then two weeks later we’re acting like that 2011 version of ourselves. (Sorry to be the downer.)
So if anything I would encourage you with what I’m preaching to my own soul. A two-word commission for 2012…
(Click here if you are having trouble viewing.)
All we have is today. This day. Whether it’s January 2nd, 28th, or June 14th. So wherever today takes us let’s press into Him. Let’s start our day with Him. Let’s meditate on His Word. Let’s love those around us free from any expectation of that love being returned.
It is 2012. A new year. A fresh start. But each day meets us with His new mercies. Each day. This day.
I pray He lavishes blessings on you this year, friends. I pray that He pulls each of us into a deeper intimacy with Him, that He sheds needful things, and that He opens our eyes to His never-changing Truth.
Fill me, Lord…
What are you hoping for with this new year?
