Last year was the first time I chose to select a scripture. One that I could try to live by. One I could try to aim for. This year, 2011, it was Matt 6 v 33: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Well, I feel that many times this year this scripture is one I have held onto. I believe it has helped me to grow and have a better attitude and better priorities with regards to my practical and prayer life. This new year, 2012, the scripture I have chosen is Isaiah 43 vs 18-19: Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. (19) Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth: Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
Wow, what an amazing scripture. Full of promise, positive and life-affirming! I am going to hold onto this scripture for 2012. I am trusting God for restoration and vindication. I am trusting God for the promises I believe He has given us. I am trusting Him, because His word says to do so and I know that I am not capable of bringing these things to pass, only God is!
What is your New Year's resolution? I encourage you to seek a scriptural one. One you can lean on when feeling low and defeated, one that will help restore your faith and hope in our God eternal.
God bless precious people
You all have changed my life for the better
