On this Walk With Him Wednesday, Ann of @Holy Experience has asked us to share about looking to the new year.
I've been praying about this next year and have chosen my theme for 2010.
It is ...trust and obey.
I remember teaching the little children in Bible Study Fellowship the words to this song.
Trust and obey
For there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey
I can easily sing those words. But do I really put them into practice?
I have to say ...no, not always.
I've been studying the book of Philippians recently. I look forward to the early mornings when I can open up my Bible, have my notebook and pen ready and click on Opening His Word Together.
Scott Samter is an excellent Bible teacher as he goes through the scriptures verse by verse. I've been so blessed by his teachings. BTW, he is Jill's hubby of Forever N Ever N Always. Need I say more?
Anyway, Philippians has been just what I've needed to study right now. Isn't that just like our God?
How I long for that peace; the peace of God which passeth all understanding.
As I look to 2010, my desire is to put these verses into practice. Enough worrying and experiencing anxiety! There is nothing too difficult for my God. But will I trust Him? And will I obey?
That is my goal for 2010. To trust and obey!
BTW, I'm also joining eLisa of Extravagant Grace the first week of January. She has an excellent guide that you can download to help with priorities and goals for 2010. Read all about it on my post here.
Let's get ready for 2010. I believe we can be used by God as we blog from our hearts. I also believe we can be a source of encouragement and prayer for one another.
Will you join us? And don't forget to visit Ann @ Holy Experience for Walk With Him Wednesday as you look forward to 2010.
