“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4
By the grace of God you made it to a new year! Whew Hew!!! You are blessed, blessed, blessed! Before you begin filling your schedule with plans and resolutions, treasure this moment. Breathe in the goodness of God. Sense Him smiling on you. Feel His love. See His hand upon your life and stand in total awe of Him. Tell your cares and worries “goodbye” because God is at the helm of your life and He is steering you to your expected end. There is so much excitement in heaven over this season in the Body of Christ because this is a time of wholeness, rejuvenation, refreshing and due reward. God is not a hard task master that is all about work, productivity, quotas and counts. He gets pleasure when His children are happy and joyful, not only because we know Him, but because we have received from Him what He has promised. Treasure every moment God gives you. Prize every every relationship, get understanding from every challenging life lesson and if you must make a resolution, resolve to surround yourself with what you love, surround yourself with who you love, and to enjoy your life.
Prayer: Father God, I love you. I am so blessed to have this intimate relationship with you. Thank you for bringing me into a new year. Thank you for the life you have given me. I receive your love, your rest and your reward. I trust you with my heart and with my life like I never have before. Be glorified in me. Make this time of my life breathtakingly gorgeous. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
