Christmas is a special time of year because the 25th is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus!
As I sit here and think back over 2012, I realize that things have happened, words have been said and thoughts have occurred, but regardless of these things (good and bad), I am truly blessed and extremely grateful for the many blessings from the Lord. At the time I didn't really consider them blessings but have come to the realization that all things are from the Lord. It is not how I act but react to each situation.
I've had so many thoughts as to what God has planned for me in 2013 and the following scripture keeps coming to mind. I will trust the following verse:
As we approach 2013, I will not make any resolutions, but I will use the following song to lead me thru the new year!
I Am Resolved
Until we meet again, May God Bless You!I am resolved no longer to linger, Charmed by the world's delight; Things that are higher, things that are nobler, These have allured my sight. I am resolved to go to the Saviour, Leaving my sin and strife; He is the true One, He is the just One, He hath the words of life. I am resolved to follow the Saviour, Faithful and true each day; Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth, He is the living way. I am resolved to enter the Kingdom, Leaving the paths of sin; Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me, Still will I enter in. Chorus: I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free; Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.
