Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
As the New Year comes rolling in I don’t do as I normally would by deciding what my New Year resolution is going to be this year. My focus is on God. How I can be intentional in all that I do to glorify God each day.
God is faithful when we make walking in the path he has set before us. What I have learned is that the love he has for us is a love like know other. I know what happens when we don’t follow his word and he shakes us up. Being a Christian to me is not just another religion or just a description of myself. It takes a commitment to God and to be intentional in everything I do each day. When I become upset by another’s actions or words I am learning to stay quiet and pray to God seeking his guidance. Sometimes we don’t need to say anything we just need to learn to be patient and allow his work to be done his way not our own.
I don’t feel making resolutions is necessary because they can become self serving. I only want to serve God. To be held by his word and convicted when I do wrong. Be accountable each day in all that I do. Serving him in away that glorifies him. To always understand what it means when Jesus died on the cross and endured all he did for us.
Gods love is like know other. He blessed me with my beautiful daughters and all my grandchildren, husband, family. He provides all that I have. It is up to me to show honor and be humbled by it all. I have never known a love like Gods.. because there isn’t. Yes there is the wrath when we are doing things based on our own-self intentionally walking in sin being disobedient. We bring that upon our own selves. It is know different than when your children don’t obey you there are consequences for there actions. We are all Gods children and there is punishment when we are not obedient to him.
Lord thank you for another day, another chance to be a better person. For the awareness you have shown me. Thank you for all that you have provided. Help me become the type of person that I would like to be , help me forgive myself and forgive others… God, make me a channel of your energy and help me understand. I thank you God for giving me another day, another unused opportunity to do it right. Keep us all close to you and listen to our prayers.Amen.
