is time well spent and a productive way to end the year 2014.
so my wings have been clipped and I have had to stay close to home. Yuk!
So with dread and a bad attitude…I set my sites on a horrible job that needing doing many moons ago…
a chore I have put off for years…the task of cleaning up piles of files and desk drawers.
Although I must share that the years of items left for a rainy day were amazing!
“A moment of prayerful reflection can prevent a lifetime of bitter regret.”
The stuff that you say with a thankful heart…Thank you Lord for the opportunity to have made a difference and
to have shared special moments in the life of someone else.
And other events are those that bring a tear or a sense of shame…
Did I mention that this was 24 years of stuff?
Give me a little grace here...
I have been busy with life.
Anyway it was quite a ride of emotions and reflection.
“I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave.
Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged!
I am the Lord your God,
and I will be there to help you wherever you go.”
I am glad I took the time to see…
Who I was
Where I had been and
What has my life meant so far.
2 Corinthians 5:17,
“Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah,
he is a new creation —
the old has passed;
look, what has come is fresh and new!
Complete Jewish Bible
Now I can look to the future with a view of…
Who I want to be
Where I want to go and
The impact I would like to have.
“I alone know the plans I have for you,
plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster,
plans to bring about the future you hope for.”
Father, give me the wisdom to move forward…
freeing me from the past that hinders.
Instead give me the courage to be the child of God you created me to be.
Full of love for you that pours out into the lives of others.
Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer,
for holding my hand and guiding my steps…
May 2015 be the best yet for all of us!
