Look at what and how are we to look at it? Well, tomorrow, God willing, we start a whole new year. A fresh start! New possibilities! An adventure with God! What might it be? That depends on how we look at it. Do we see it as just another part of our existence that we must get through, somehow? Do we just take it for granted that it is only one more year? If so, then we will probablynot get much out of it. On the other hand, if we have a growing awareness that God wants to give us the best year of our lives, we will find it to be exciting and filled with opportunities to enjoy a walk with God that can transcend any experience of Him that we have had since the day that we came to know Him. We can learn more about Him. We can explore more deeply the depths of His love for us. We can be instruments that He uses, channels for His overflow into other lives. We are that much closer to eternity. Will this be the year in which our Lord comes for His chosen bride? Will this be the year in which we look into the Face of Jesus? Will these be days when someone or quite a few will be introduced to Him and we be the ones to introduce them? Will it be a year that we look back on as the most effective year ever, Spiritually? Can you feel the refreshing breeze of the Holy Spirit's Presence and challenge? Selah! Do you feel an urge to commit yourself to seeking an intimacy with God deeper than you have ever known before? Oh! Please do it! Ron
