New Year ~ New Trust!

Happy New Year everyone! May the coming year bring in a new season of hope for our nation and may the Kingdom of God expand beyond our wildest dreams. On a personal note, I’m targeting trust and delight in the Lord this year and Psalm 37 beckons my spirit:

1 Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong.
2 For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
5 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
6 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
7 Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.
8 Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—
it only leads to harm.
9 For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.
10 Soon the wicked will disappear. Though you look for them, they will be gone.
11 The lowly will possess the land and will live in peace and prosperity.

I thank God for you, my friends. May God bless your year ahead with favor every place you step your foot. May He protect you and draw you close to Him and give you the desires of your heart.
