Well Father here we are, another new year is upon us and I’m am so excited for it. Last year was not what I ever expected it to be but I can see how You were present and even in some of my darkest moments I know it was You and Your continuous flow of love for me that brought me to this new year. I saw You in my doctors, you provided the very best for me, in my job and in my employer and co worker, in friends who drove me everywhere I needed to go and especially in my daughter and all that she did & does for me and last but certainly not least my Pastor who fed me You without stopping, never giving up but always hearing You and imparting You to me when I couldn’t hear You on my own. I expect new and amazing moments with You in 2013, even more Jesus moments than ever before, I hear Your promise of great grace in this new year and I am a humble recipient of this promise so no matter what things look like on my outside, I am just like Jesus on the inside!!
Happy New Year everyone!!
We are to endeavor to see and recognize outstanding Jesus moments each and every day. This is what my Pastor asked us to do this week.
As I thought about what some of those moments might look like I realized that being at church yesterday was in itself a whole lot of Jesus moments put together, just to be there, sitting in a chair, feeling better than I had in quite a while was His doing.
Being taught the message of grace by a Pastor who I kind of think of as our Paul, someone God has handpicked for us and for those who will hear him through the many media outlets available to him, so many Jesus moments over the span of years, but all of those put together to bring me to this moment in time.
And I realized that it was somehow easier to look back to see what Jesus has been doing in my life, like the pieces of a puzzle falling into place, each one being placed correctly but not being able to see the picture they become until the last piece is placed, but trusting that the end result will be the completed picture. It’s a picture of how our lives in Christ are, each moment may not make perfect sense or we may seem incomplete but as we trust God and as we accept that each moment of our lives are Jesus moments we have the confident assurance that the end result will be perfectly complete. Every moment is a Jesus moment!
Spend some time just looking at what Jesus has done for you and you can’t help but get excited about what is yet to come!!
