January 1, 2019 has come! 2018 was a great year, but today is the start of a new year and I desire to trust God to usher in a few of my biggest heart’s desires. So, I am taking the following scripture to dwell on during this year:
“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:22-24.
My responsibility is to wait on the Lord because He is faithful. My hope must be in His timing not my striving. Trying to make things happen is exhausting, but resting is freeing!
If some of my dreams and desire are still unfulfilled at the end of 2019 then it was not God’s time for them yet. I must trust in the Lord with all my heart and not depend upon my own understanding, seek His will and He will do the rest.
I know the One who rescued me nearly 49 years ago is not finished with me yet. I choose to greet this year with expectations knowing that He has my future in His hands! So January 1st……GOOD MORNING!
