2000… and twelve.
I so enjoyed composing my year-ending blog post (with images and brief words), that I’ve decided to use the same format to express my longings and prayers for the coming year.
These are not “New Year’s resolutions.”
They aren’t specific expectations of where, when, who, how, etc.
Rather, they are my desires for Christ’s work in me this coming year of 2012…
“Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands. May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your Word.” Ps. 119:73-74
“As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for you, my God.” Ps. 42:1
“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32
“For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12
” I will run the path of Your commandments, for You will enlarge my heart.” Ps. 119:32
“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new. Now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” Is. 43:18-19
“So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.” Hosea 6:3
And finally…. this:
Here’s to the year to come.
