Yes, we are on the verge of a New Year!!! 2012 is approaching and I have to admit, I feel excitement in the air. I truly believe this is going to a year of great things! Why, you ask? Well for a couple of reasons. The first being is, I know in my heart, God knows where I am going. His Word says, “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day” Proverbs 4:18. Then here is what it reads in the next verse, “But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. They have no idea what they are stumbling over. Wow, there was a time in my life when I can truly say I lived in verse 19. . . stumbling over STUFF trying to figure out which direction to go. But today, THIS DAY! I can shout to the masses that even if I stumble I am not in the DARK!!! Thank you God!
The second reason I believe this year is going be about greatness is, because I am doing what one of my favorite authors, Melody Beattie wrote. She talked about embracing your destiny. . .”How often we search outside of ourselves for some elusive moment, for an experience like someone else is having, for an emotion we’d like to feel but aren’t, at least not right now. How often we long to be somewhere other than where we are, or someone other than who we are. How easy it can be to complain about and regret our past, thinking it’s somehow wrong. The answer is to fall in love, fall in love with our own life. Our destiny isn’t some far-off moment or something that happens to someone else. Our destiny is taking place right now. It’s been happening all along.” We need to realize that our destiny is tied up in the choices we make. We need to accept and fall in love with our own lives, loving the lessons we have obtain from living our lives. . .Never discount where you are. . .there is a blessing tied to it! Where you are is part of the journey of where you’re going!!! Think about Job. . .where he was BLESSED HIS LIFE. . . he didn’t even see it coming! DESTINY!!!
