The Day After Christmas 2012 Thoughts

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

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.

I will hasten to Him,
Hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, Greatest, Highest,
I will come to Thee.

Until we meet again, May God Bless You!
