Set us free, trust the mystery
Till our eyes are clear enough to see you
Where you lead us, we will follow
Where you lead us, we will follow you
(Song by Jars of Clay and unfortunately can't find a link to listen to it anywhere!)
I feel like that is enough for one year. I could end it right there and just live each day trying to do and believe and follow. But wait, there's more. This morning I was reading my Bible and read Psalm 33. Again, there was an immediate knowing that the last three verses were meant for me today and the last two were especially for this year.
"Our soul waits for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us,
even as we hope in you."
I will choose to trust Him this year as I hope in Him and what He will do in my life. I don't anticipate it to be easy or problem-free. But I know He will be near and He alone will fill my heart with gladness.
So I'll tuck these sweet truths deep in my pocket and say, "Bring it on 2011! Let's see what you've got!"
