Well I can't believe that it's 2010. Where did the last 10 years go? I heard this saying one time and it is so true, "Life is like a roll of toilette paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes" (Thank you Pastor Paul!).
Starting out this new year I wanted to start fresh with everything, eating healthier, reading more, getting organized and changing my mindset. The Lord has done many wonderful things in last couple of years, but it has also been some of the hardest years. Life is going by faster and faster and if I don't set my mind in the right place it's going to pass me by. I need a change of attitude and a change of mind if I'm going to push through this next year no matter what comes my way. So I decided that I'm going to start reading though the book of Psalms. One chapter a day, at that rate it will last a good part of the year. The Psalms offer so many wonderful things, encouragement, wisdom, guidance and comfort, just to name a few. Already the Lord has shown me some great things.
Chapter 1, I need to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, so that my roots will run deep. No matter what I go through, I will stand firm.
Chapter 2, I will be blessed when I run to Him for refuge.
Chapter 3, many are the enemies all around me, but He is my shield. He will answer me then I cry out to Him, He will sustain me. Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Chapter 4, He has put more joy in my heart than those who abound. He has set me apart and He will hear me when I call. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for in Him alone I will dwell in safety.
Wow, that's only in the first four days of reading. I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to show me as the days go by. I know it's not going to be easy and I'm sure some days will be harder than others. But with the Lords help I know that I will make it through this year stronger than ever before. Thank you Lord for Your Word and how it transforms lives and hearts.
