How we love YOU!
How thankful we are for all YOU accomplished in each of our lives in 2007.
YOU carried us through much.
Faithful Father how we seek YOU once again.
Give us MORE of YOU this year…for then there will be less of us.
What needs to go?
What must stay?
What changes should we pursue to please YOU?
Cleanse our hearts of self fulfillment.
Casual faith is a casualty breeding discontent.
Purposeful faith is an offering of deliberate devotion by Grace.
YOU long for us to seek YOUR heart and it is ALWAYS for others.
Therefore we bow down and ask for YOUR plans for us…little or much.
” All our fountains are in YOU.” Psalm 87:7b
The schedule is orchestrated by YOU.
The strength to accomplish is supplied by YOU.
Come Lord Jesus, we invite YOU to make this year fruitful, beneficial and fulfilling to YOUR Kingdom.
We are the army of God.
YOUR army always has provision.
Add or delete.
Subtract or multiply.
“Teach me YOUR way O Lord and I will walk in YOUR truth;
Give me an undivided heart that I may fear YOUR name. ” Psalm 86:11
Keep us focused, faithful and fervent in prayer.
Reveal the wonder of Jesus at every turn.
Create a hunger for The Word and a desire for fellowship with others.
Position ” God Encounters” along the journey.
Then we shall be prepared “ready to do whatever is good” Titus 3:1c
The battle will come, but so will the King of Kings.
We’ll wage it under Divine Authority and Guidance and we shall win.
Our God wins.
Set us apart.
Saturate our lives with YOUR transparency.
With anticipation we seek YOUR Hand in the work that lies ahead.
With joy we await YOUR bidding.
” The prospect of the righteous is joy.” Proverbs 10:28a
Thank YOU for the lessons of 2007 and for the new beginnings of 2008.
Bless us we pray as we come together embracing 2008 with ONE VOICE in YOUR NAME.
