Patience for 2018

It’s that time again…a new year is on the horizon.  And the thought that comes to my mind is this…what am I going to do differently?  

The first 48 years were tough.  If it weren’t for the fact that the Lord Himself saved me from my own desire for destruction, I wouldn’t be here today.  

His mercies are new each morning (Lamentations 3:22-23) and His grace is sufficient for me (2 Corinthians 12:9).

I have such high expectations and hope for this new year!  I know God has a good plan.  I know I am blessed.  I believe that He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world and I am more than a conqueror!  All God’s promises are in Him yes and in Him Amen!  

The past 4 years have shown me that He is God and He is good.  He is all I need and my heart desires to be closer to Him.  Whatever that looks like, is where I want to be.  Whatever I have to do in order to seek Him more completely is what I want.  

He gave me my new word for 2018 on my birthday.  I turned 52 on December 27 and the verse for that day was Isaiah 40:31

I will wait on the Lord…I will have patience.

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.
