I was thinking this afternoon on what to put on my blog and I started thinking about people I love. I love my Pastor and his family and I love my church family and I love my physical family but I was thinking with a new year coming and getting ready to have a fresh start. There are good things I did last year and their are plenty of times I failed the Lord last year but I am not writing to have a pity party. I am glad that even though I have failed the Lord his grace and his mercy has come through everytime. I was thinking of what I want close to my heart in 2006. I pray that you will have something close to your heart next year.
I want to keep my wife close to my heart this next year. I love my wife and I would do anything for her. I want to provide for her emotionally physically, and emotionally. I thank God for my wife and I want her to stay close to my heart.
I want to keep the scriptures close to my heart. I want to read more of God's Holy Word next year. I love the Word of God. I want to keep it close to my heart so I don't sin as much as I did this last year. I want the scriptures to be more of a lamp unto my feet and light until my path this next year.
III. Secret Place
I want to have communion with my Lord more in 2006 than I had this last year. I want to know my Lord more intimately this next year. I want to be in the secret place for people more next year. I don't want to go one day without going to the secret place next year.
I want to keep Jesus not only close to my heart but I want him to be on the throne of my heart. Like everyone else there were plenty of times last year that I control things in my life and made decisions without consulting my Lord. The Bible says we should love God with all our heart, all our soul, and all our mind. I don't believe we can do this all the time but I do believe with as much as in me I want to love him more this year than I did last year.
In conclusion just a couple of things I want to be close to my heart this next year. I pray even now that you will find somethings you want closer to your heart this year than last year. Till next time God Bless.
