I can’t believe the New Year is upon us. As I look back on 2009, all I can say is wow! This year has been filled with many trails and tribulations, which kept coming one after another. But I still can say the blessings have outweighed everything in comparison. God has shown himself to be faithful through the most difficult circumstances. As I look into the uncertainty of 2010, I can only marvel in who my God is and His incredible holiness.
I hold on the belief that all things work for the good, and there is nothing that happens outside of God’s will. And that everything that happens in my life weather good or bad is for the purpose of growing me and changing me into the likeness of Christ.
As I look back over my life, I can only be amazed at the beautiful portrait God has painted and continues to paint with my life. I also see the glorious work in my husband, children, and family and friends around me. I am not the same person I use to be yesterday, and I look forward to the person I will be tomorrow. There is only one thing left to say: Bring it on 2010.
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus or Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2Peter 1:2-4
