A New Year

It is now 2012! This year has seemed to fly by. I have contemplated setting new year's resolutions. I seem to never stick to them; however I do feel that it is important to evaluate 2011, and to make necessary changes to have a fresh start and try to do better in this new year. There is just something about a fresh start on January 1. :) I have asked the Lord to show me areas where I need improvement.....which can be every area, although He did show me certain ones for my focus. We will make decisions in this coming year both big and small, and we ask for His guidance in them all. Also, as many of you know, I have a stronghold in my life that is constantly with me. Satan uses my health to discourage me and tear me away from doing my responsibilities to the best of my ability. This new year I am resolved to conquer these fears with God's power, not mine. Some verses I have reflected on this morning:

"You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance"

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you."

Psalm 32: 7-8

Amen and Amen!!!
