As we get ready for a New Year my husband and I our planning and praying. The years go by so fast that life feels as if it is moving at top speed. All we can do is enjoy every day we are given from our Father in Heaven. Why do we make plans for a New Year? Why even bother we just end up breaking them in 3 weeks and then we feel as if we have failed. The big one is always weight everyone is going to fit in that bathing suit that the model in the magazine is wearing. Another is a bad habit you're going to stop that bad habit you started 5, 10 20yrs ago. Great you want to change something you hate about yourself and you want to make yourself feel better. Here's the thing though is there really a problem and have you gone to the right person to correct the problem.
Forget trying to be something God has not made you to be and be what God has made you to be. Why not try asking you’re father in heaven to help you lose weight or stop that bad habit. You know he is the only one that can help you. He is the one that will give you the strength to fight the Giants that you may think are attacking you making you feel less important.
Prayer, Reading your Bible and Fasting will change you life and guess what it's free.
So this year is no different from others for are family. We pray to become closer to God even closer then last year. I give him my extra weight and my struggles and know he hears me because he always hears me. In God's time my prayers will be answered if he feels they need to be. I am not saying you don't have to do things on your end to make things change. Just remember though he should be the first one you go to so you don't make the wrong decisions on your path to change.
Some of my Wishes and Prayers for 2010 are the same as past years. We have some new prayers and dreams this year as each New Year brings different challenges.
This year we have so much to pray for maybe more this year then any other year I can remember. Are freedom of speech, religion and the right to life has slowly began to be striped from us. Pray everyone please pray for our country add this to your New Years resolutions. Pray to stop all the madness that people in this country are trying to do.
So let’s take out wasteful things that just hinder our lives. Let’s put down things that will honor God, our marriages, and help our Children grow in his name.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge him
And he will make your paths straight."
