It is close to midnight and fireworks are resounding in the background of Dick Clark's countdown. My cat is pacing and my dog is hiding in the bathtub!
As we enter the New Year, I am excited about the plans God has in store for my family. I pray for continued guidance and patience (a heavy dose!). I pray that I will be content in the wait...content in the here and now. I want to savor being just a family of four. I pray for strength and peace.
Thank you Lord for a wonderful year. I praise you for keeping my family safe and secure. I trust that what you began in our lives will come to fruition in the coming months. Guide us, use our lives as a testimony to your grace and miracle working power. God, I surrender all to you.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40: 29-31
