A new beginning.
This year I want God on my side. He always were… But this year I pray I will be more sensitive to sense His presence by my side all the time. See His hands move in my life and in the lives of my loved ones. I wish to learn about the sin in my own life as painful as it surely will be. This year I want to be able to fully surrender, repent and feel the Lord’s love in all areas of my life. I surrendered fully already… and yet… I still surrender. I pray I can be a full time 24/7 surrendered Spirit. I may not be able to. I may be in for another year of trouble, I might be… but if God is for me, who can be against me?
This first day of the new year 2016 I pray Psalm 51:16-17
I would surrender my dearest possessions or destroy all that I prize to prove my regret, but You don’t take pleasure in sacrifices or burnt offerings.
What sacrifice I can offer You is my broken spirit because a broken spirit, O God, a heart that honestly regrets the past, You won’t detest.
May He search my heart, show me my sin and welcome me in His arms – daily!
Happy New Year
