" THE YEAR IS GONE......."

December 31, 2010
Isaiah 43:16,18-19
The year is gone, finished, past. We cannot reclaim it or undo
It. We cannot rest on the great distance it has brought us. If
Tomorrow dawns, it will be another day, a new opportunity, and the
Time to show our faith in Jesus as Lord. Let's journey forward,
Knowing that God already inhabits the future and promises to
Provide us refreshment on our journey there.
Lord of all eternity, please help me to learn from my mistakes
This past year, but not to dwell on them. Please help me not rest
On my accomplishments in this past year, but use them to further
Your work in me and through me. Please help me not quarrel with
Those who injured me yesterday, last month, or this past year.
Instead, O Father, lead me in your paths and help me see your
Mighty works this next year. In Jesus' name and by his power I ask
It. Amen.
