I know for many of us 2011 was TOUGH! And many of us can say HALLELUJAH IT IS OVER!!
What does 2012 bring for us all? We heard an awesome sermon on Sunday about challenging ourselves in our walks with the Lord. If we keep Jesus the priority, if we give him the first and the best of everything then we will have the best year spiritually. He didn’t say anything about it being an easy year, but the most prosperous SPIRITUALLY! Isn’t that what we want anyway?
In light of this I made a list of resolutions for the year.
I am going to read my Bible everyday. Cause, honestly, I DON’T!
I am going to read the Bible with my kids everyday!` Cause, honestly, I DON’T
I am going to drink water EVERYDAY! ( thought about giving up coffee, then thought,,NAW!)
I am going to loose 20 more pounds. I would love to be in a size 14 by May.....can she do it folks?
A couple of days after Christmas I read this
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, the maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them THE LORD, who remains faithful forever. He up holds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free, the Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the father less and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. The Lord REIGNS FOREVER! You God o Zion for ALL generations! Praise the Lord!!!! Psalm 146:5-10
I think that this Psalm is an excellent definition for who God is.
The maker of heaven and earth
He remains faithful forever
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
He feeds the hungry
He sets the prisoners free! HALLELUJAH!
He gives sight to the blind
He gives us hope and love
He protects and is a father to the fatherless and a husband to the widow
He doesn’t put up with whooey from the wicked
