As 2014 comes to a close, I remind myself how great this year has been. It has been hard at times, but great none the less. This past year was filled with amazing blessing and many lessons with hardships as I grew in my walk with Christ and I am incredibly grateful for each. As 2015 begins, I am reminding myself how great of a purpose we have in God and that He has a perfect plan for each and every one of our lives. Whatever goals you have set for yourself know that all things are possible with Christ and that the greatest things come when keep our eyes fixed on Him. An important lesson I am being taught is to wait. I know God has the perfect plan for me and I trust Him with my life. However, God isn't going to make that plan completely clear, or in other words, I am not going to simply wake up and know that plan all in one piece. I know each and every step will be made clear when I am ready to receive it. And in between knowing those steps we are called to wait on the Lord. As we wait, we dig down deep into God's word and become wiser. The times when things are unclear and you don't know what lays ahead, you have peace in knowing that God does know and He will show you at the proper time. He promises us this. (Isaiah 64:4) So as you take on this New Year, I pray that you would find love, peace, and truth in Christ, and that if you know Him you would continue to focus on what He has in store for you. If you don't know who Christ is, but want to learn more about the One who created you, loves you immeasurably, and the One who has an amazing plan for your life- click here.
