My Hope for 2012

30 12 2011

For this reason, I bow my knees and pray to the Father. It is from Him that every family in heaven and on earth has its name. I pray that because of the riches of His shining-greatness, He will make you strong with power in your hearts through the Holy Spirit. I pray that Christ may live in your hearts by faith. I pray that you will be filled with love. I pray that you will be able to understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep His love is. I pray that you will know the love of Christ. His love goes beyond anything we can understand. I pray that you will be filled with God Himself.

God is able to do much more than we ask or think through His power working in us. May we see His shining-greatness in the church. May all people in all time honor Christ Jesus. Let it be so.  Ephesians 3:14-21 NLV

We are so thankful that we are approaching a new year. It is a traditional time for thinking about accomplishments of the past and what we want to accomplish in the year to come. I am thankful that we have made it thus far and that God has been faithful to be with us each step of the way. This year God has shown Himself, strong as a Healer, a Sustainer and a Provider. He has provided peace and joy in the midst of storms and challenges. And He has continued to be a lamp unto our feet guiding us in our life’s journey. Our Father has been so faithful to keep His word and I am so thankful for His goodness and His mercy toward us.

In 2012, my hope is to be strengthened in my walk with the Lord. Standing strong and tall in His Word, I pray my words and actions to be a reflection of a steadfast faith and trust in Him. I pray that I am able to show His tremendous love for me with my love for others. I pray that I will be diligent in excellence in doing His will today and in the New Year to come. I will walk in health and God’s blessings of peace and joy. We thank God for new beginnings building on the strong foundation of His Word.
