2009 Is Your Year Of Grace And Favor.

Some people dread what the New Year holds; retirement, the empty nest, chronic illness, unemployment, life without a loved one. Well, God loves to take people at the end of their rope and set them on the road to peace, joy and victory. He's the expert at drying tears, calming fears injecting courage into anxious hearts and removing the sting of old memories. He "makes all thing new" (Rev 21:5) But He never leads you back, just forward.

I love the fact that the Lord longs to be gracious to us. Iam asking my self what do I want to see happen in my life this year? Do I want to continue my education at this junction of my life? What if I could...? because I alone knows what makes my heart leap. I was listening to Dr. David Jeremiah the other day and he gave some great pointers to consider (1) Seek God (2) Determine your goals (3) Write them down (4) Release the out come to Him who "longs to be gracious to us." To be gracious means to show favor. The desire of God's heart is that we walk in His grace and favor every day of this year.
