Time to get used to typing in a new year at the end of everything I lay a date to, 2015 is gone. But I comfort myself in the fact that God is timeless, God is not confined to our time-keeping. I do not believe that God measures our lives by time, but by growth and relationship. God is all about Relationship, Us to Him, Me to you, You to me. God is all about trust; and I can trust Him to accomplish all that He intends to accomplish in and through me for my lifetime, however short or long. His word tells us this in Psalm 57:
Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. 2 I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me. 3 He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me. Selah. God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth.
O Lord God, I have done what I believe You have asked me to do. I have put myself out there. I suddenly feel exposed and vulnerable. It felt so much safer with You, alone in my room, with Bible and computer in hand. But You have asked me to step out in faith and share what You give to me. It is not mine to keep, it belongs to the Body of Christ. It belongs to those still lost in the world, wandering about without You as their Shepherd. So take my meager offering, my 5 loaves and 2 fish, and Do as You will with my life all that You have envisioned in 2016. I must decrease and You must increase. I am not my own, I have been bought with a Price. Glorify Yourself in every way possible through my tiny life.
In Jesus’ Name
