2011

A new day, a new year, a new decade. We tend to love the thought of new, but I think on occasion we forget the moment we accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, we became new creatures. I've been on this planet a long time (2011 is my year of Jubilee...my word, I'll be 50 in June!), accepted Christ decades ago, and sometimes find myself not living as the new person I am.

As I pray over 2011, I pray I live the life of a saved, redeemed, delivered person. I pray I see things through. I pray I get back on track and get the rest of this excess weight (as my English godson says: surplus to requirement) off!!!

I pray for our country to be a sheep nation, not a goat nation, that our government makes decisions which are righteous in the Lord's sight; especially decisions regarding Israel. I pray for our president to become a mighty man of God.

I pray for the church is America to wake up and be the prepared Bride waiting on our Bridegroom.

The Lord gave me the word joy last year, this year the word is glory. I await seeing His glory manifested throughout the year.

May we serve Him well this year. Happy New Year Sisters!
