For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation
I have been living in America more than twenty years now, and I was no longer surprised when seeing funny, weird American behavior, until the day I saw a huge stuffed bear’s head sticking out of a car on the road!
Thanks America for keeping me entertained!
The years of our life are seventy
Or even by reason of strength eighty
Yet their span is but toil and trouble
They are soon gone, and we fly away
Who considers the power of your anger
And your wrath according to the fear of you?
So teach us to number our days
That we may get a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:10-12 (ESV)
Today is just a continuation of yesterday, but we like a new start. I am sure you have some New Year’s resolutions. Every year, I see many new faces when I go to the gym, but by March, these new people have disappeared. Yes, we all fully intend to follow through, but our determination may not be enough. Breaking old habits and establishing new patterns is not easy. I have my lists of New Year’s resolutions also. In fact, every year they are the same. But this one is my lifelong resolution:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33 ESV)
May your year 2018 be blessed by God’s grace and mercy!
