C.S Lewis said,"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
I think another year like 2012 will be great to have for 2013. Sometimes it is easy to forget the blessings we have, because it becomes common. We have been blessed with His mighty arm filled with friends, family and children. I want to learn and teach my children to find the gifts in the little things.
Some of us want God to use us. For that we believe God has to send us to be a missionaries or give us a bigger platform. But what if our platform is to reach out someone in your neighborhood and your community or to make someone life better by one act of kindness.
Don't make your miracle so common, that you don't lose your excitement. At the same time, don't get comfortable and you stopped ask God to give you a new vision and dream.
Philippians 3:13, said "Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead."
This is my favorite lyrics, My prayer looks like this.
Blessings By Laura Story:
We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
Comfort our family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way to much to give us lesser things
'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You're near?
it goes on to say and ends-
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst
This world can't satisfy?
I wish your New Year to be filled with love, family and health from our family to your family.
Happy New Year!!
