Happy New Year!
Praying that you have as much hope and enthusiasm for the New Year – I sense with anticipation that this will be a year of adventure and trust that I will have much to learn and therefore much to share.
This year I want to focus on life – my understanding of life is that we are given this as a gift and then given the responsibility of stewarding life on earth, in the skies and in the seas.
I am looking for something different – looking for God‘s intent when He made us stewards – responsible managers of things that really matter. He gave us the wisdom, a relationship with Him, all the tools required to do the job right – so what does that look like?
My fear is always when confronted with the truth that is not the norm in our culture – will I pursue truth or bend to culture or worse, be apathetic. Hence this is my accountability factor – to share with you each day so that I say the truth – then ask God to make it real in my life. That is why I believe that this year will be an adventure.
I have only two rules I am following this year.
1. Love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength
2. Love my neighbour as myself
Lord, I give you this year, 2012, make it count, make a difference, let me be part of your plan and give the courage to do what needs to be done.
