For I know the plans I have for you” says the LORD. “ They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. — Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

As we close one year and begin another it’s a perfect time to sit back and reflect on all that one year has brought into our lives. A year is such a long stretch of time and each day carries its own joys or troubles.

Last year in particular was a very long and arduous year for my husband and I. We were thrilled to see it end and looked forward to the promise that a new year brings. This year 2012, also came with its challenges and changes, more than I’ve ever faced in my life or marriage. However we were filled with Peace and Joy a gift The Lord freely gave as we lived our lives in his presence.

This is not to say we were without trouble, but that it was the Lords plan for us to go and grow through our struggles. We experienced joy even on our worst days because of his presence.

Our Father in heaven loves us so dearly that he’s had plans for our lives even before we were conceived. So with 5 hours left before the new year I dare you to reflect on even your worst days and see the good that The Lord has brought out of them. I challenge you to forget making a New Years resolution, but to make a Life resolution! The challenge is to live each day intentionally for Christ, to release control of every area in your life into His care, to move from your seat as a lukewarm Christian into a seat of a Christian that is on fire for God, and lastly to love and take delight in The Lord and watch Him release the desires of your heart.

My prayer for each and everyone on of you reading this blog is that you realize how much The Lord loves and cares for you. And that you will see that your worth and purpose lie within Him. Stop trying to juggle life with one foot in the Kingdom and one foot in the World. Live to please Him everyday because we all know that even in the world almost doesn’t count!!

Happy New Year!
