On the way to work from the coffee shop, I passed a church with this Bible verse on it's sign:
"Behold I am making all things new." Revelation 21:5
Lovely words for this new day as we look toward the new year that will soon be upon us. As we put to rest 2011, and wake up to 2012, let's let God make us new. Cleanse our hearts, clear our minds, open our ears and our eyes. Let's allow Him to take hold of our lives and show us His way...His dreams for us...His hopes...the life of abundance He will provide. Let's trust Him. Only and wholly Him. Let's open our hands, palms up, to receive what He has to offer to us. Let's give Him control of our thoughts, our words, our actions. Let's see what He has in store. Let's live our lives for Him...shining His light, His love, His truth for all to see. Let's be NEW in Him and SHINE for Him!
