Like you, I can’t help but embrace this season as a time of reflection of where I have been this year, but more importantly, where I will be going. This has been a kaleidoscope type of year. It has been a mixture of tears, laughter, victory, challenges, illness, healing and basically redefining much of what my life consisted of for a long time. Wow. I have…
So many blessings.
So many opportunities.
So much family.
So much love.
And so much Jesus.
I am so excited. Can you tell? I don’t have to redo yesterday and tomorrow is still being created uniquely for me. It is like watching 2012 fly away like sand in the breeze but yet, instead of seeing what is gone I see the treasure than remains. That’s it! It has been a treasure hunt of a year!
Just like the precious stones in the foundation that Jesus promises in the new Jerusalem to come, are the jewels in the days ahead – for me – and you. Let’s whisper to Jesus. Ask Him what He has for us. Plan for new always – but be sure to keep care of our current valuables. Remember His word….be faithful over a few things and He will make you ruler over much. Matthew 15:21
Glory Hallelujah! Increase!! That reminds me. I want to increase my knowledge. You know, read books about things I don’t know for one thing. I just checked out a knitting book at the library. Yep. I am going to learn how to knit so that I can create beautiful gifts and keep my hands occupied. Let’s face it. If I am holding a knitting needle I can’t hold snacks! Smile. I feel called to fast. Not because of the flesh but just because of what God has put on my heart as spiritual intercession for others. See, there are many ways to love on others and that makes me very happy.
Take me on a love journey this year, Jesus. Wow me. Wow all of us.
In Jesus’ name,
