Here it is the first morning of a new decade. What it holds only God knows and that is just as it should be. He set the world in motion...with Him we live and move and have our being.
As for New Years Resolutions, I have none...never do. I try to let the Lord guide my life and take care of my family. BUT one thing I have learned this past year is about forgiveness! You know, when you sit in the seat of the accused, after being misjudged and wrongly accused? And have no clue as to where it is coming from. How this very moment defines you! Do you lash back? No, thankfully I didn't empower others to shape my identity in Christ. I learned a great lesson a few years back from a video of Andy Stanley. Jesus, wasn't defined by His enemies and we didn't deserve forgiveness but Jesus refused to give away His power. Hallelujah!
So, I start out this wonderful New Year, determined to forgive. Why? Because forgiveness, opens wide the door to relationships. And if there is victory to be won, it is through forgiveness. Think about it...what drew you to Jesus in the first place? Yes...FORGIVENESS. God defines us...no one else and for this, I am, ever grateful.
Love to All!
