May your steps be ordered by God Almighty and may you know His will for your life.
May you find purpose and joy in serving and loving those God has allowed to touch the very fibers of your being. Allowing those you love and hold dear to see Christ through you.
May you find contentment - not in things - but in position. Your position in Christ - adopted into the Family of God. Assured with the "blessed Hope" that this life is not the end; but rather only a dressing room for eternity.
I wish you understanding of those around you who do not know Christ personally. May your heart be filled with the knowledge of their need - and through this knowledge and God's wisdom may you be able to minister to them - Christ - allowing them to see that in Him lies all contentment and satisfaction for which they are longing.
May you find complete security in His love for you. Resting fully in the fact that God's love is offered to us - not because of what we do, or what we accomplish - but because we are. We breathe and are alive - thus He loves. Oh the unsearchable riches of God!
I pray that this upcoming year brings you to a deeper knowledge of Christ. Yet, knowing as I pray this - a deeper understanding of Christ often comes through "fellowship of His sufferings".
I pray that this upcoming year allows Heaven to be caught in a clearer perspective. I trust that Heaven becomes real to you - allowing your heart to be turned away from the cares of this life and focused anew to the riches of His awaiting home for you - a mansion and the joy of being in His presence for eternity.
It is with these thoughts I wish you a Happy New Year. Not filled with the frivolities and temporal things of this life - but rather may your New Year be filled with Him.
"Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things that are before I press towards the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
"That I May Know HIM!"
Blessings my Friends - May your year be filled with Christ.
(If you do not know Christ personally - please write me I would love to share Him with you - He is everything you could ever want - and will love you deeper than any you have ever known.)
