Happy New Year 2016


Good morning world!  Here I am sitting at my dining room table quickly typing my New Year resolutions.  I do want to wish you a prosperous and happy New Year, 2016 is going to be one of the most memorable years I will live.

It is my plan to stay focused on God and I am in hot pursuit of God’s plan for my life.  I want to know what God has in store for me and one thing is for sure I am not giving up so easily this time.  Each time I pray and ask please reveal to me what Your plans are for my life. 

It struck me like a ton of bricks this morning, ‘I know the plans I have for you’ says the Lord God.  ‘Plans to prosper you … plans to give you hope and a future … pray to me, and I will listen to you.’  Jeremiah 29: 11 – 12

So this is my plan, I have decided to take each day as it comes, I don’t know what each day holds and to try and predict is frivolous.  Now today has been really difficult as I actually got out of bed it struck me that in the past someone gave me an old pink dress in exchange for one of my brand new dresses.  It upset me to such an extent that I actually realised how and why I hate pink.  As I took the pink T shirt out of my cupboard it made me upset and tearful.  So the next thing I need to do is forgive this person and set myself free. 

So Connie I forgive you and let this be in the past, I am over being upset and hurt about something so frivolous.

So far, number 1 is:  take each day as it comes;  number 2 is: forgive people who offend and hurt me.
Do you think I am going to have a prosperous new year?  I do, today I have taken 2 major steps in the right direction.

Prayer

Abba Father, Lord thank you for today and this year.  Lord You know the desires of my heart, You know I need a vision and I want a purpose.  I pray about these two major plans for my life.  I want to also ask You please help me going forward.  I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over my life and await Your instructions.  In Jesus Name, Amen

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB) 38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
