It's A New Year

Ephesians 5:17 "Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is."

As I'm writing this...we're only 3 1/2 hours into the year 2008. As I reflect on the past year..I'm reminded of a year full of mistakes and failures. There were also many victories. But just as each day is fresh with no mistakes...so is this new year. Will we fail Him this year? Of course we will. But we all need to strive not to.

My prayer for this year of 2008 is to be closer to the Lord than I was in 2007. I want to grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Saviour. I want to be more faithful to Him and seek to please Him more than ever before.

My prayer for each of you is the same. I also pray that this blog will be used in the year to come to see souls saved and for others to be encouraged by what they read here. I pray the Lord will bless this blog and bless each one that stops by. I pray that each of us will stay in His will and that those who are not in His will would find out what His will is and get in it.

May the Lord bless each of you abundantly in 2008!!
