So this is it, everyone... the end of another year. And if there's one thing the Lord has worked overtime to teach me this year, it's to be completely dependent on Him. Not on me, not on others, not on circumstances... just Him. It's been a long, slow, sometimes painful process, and I'm certainly still learning. But it's been a journey worth taking.
A lot of us make New Year's resolutions - about anything from losing weight and quitting smoking to setting career goals - but I'm going in a different direction. If I could encourage you to do one thing this year, it would be to go before the Lord and just learn.
Learn about who He is and what He's done for us; what He wants to do for us every second of every day if we'd only back off and let Him. Learn about His words and His promises... and believe in them wholeheartedly.
It's a resolution you'll never regret.
Happy New Year, everyone! Here's to a wonderful 2011!
