I’m a little behind but only by a day. I hope this second day of 2013 has been such a blessing to you! This year, what can I say? I cannot describe the excitement I have for what God is going to do. He makes all things new and that is word I feel He has given me for this year.
Looking back over 2012 is such a blessing. The word God gave me back last January was “Change”. I’m not a fan of change but God really carried me through this year. There was some kind of change each month this year.
He carried me through an ending of dreams and a renewal of new/old ones. Three people close to me moved two away and one closer. Those two were hard, and the third was a happy/sad deal. I went on my first mission trip in about five years and then again on my third one. I quit the job I loved because it’s what God asked of me. My dad got married and I gained some new family (including two step-brothers)! I went to middle school camp and then a high school lock-in! He taught me a lot, and He was and is so faithful!
God did all of that and so much more this past year; I know He has immeasurably more this year. Maybe more change, yes. Maybe, more hard stuff, yes. Maybe more blessings, YES! All will be new!
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
