Happy New Year! Happy 2013!

Many people have already posted their New Year Post, their New Years Resolutions, their New Years Wish list from God. "Not "I said the Diva. I told God all I want in this year is more of him. Instead of getting caught all up in the hype of, "this is the year of....", I'm caught all up in Jesus. He is Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the End. I hope this doesn't sound to "churchy" to you but I'm just keeping it real. See, I'm at a place of transition. Transitioning from one place to another. Transitioning from one job to two jobs. Transitioning from taking naps to taking walks. (Winter time makes me just wanna take naps, and do things indoors). Being a healthier me :) Transitioning to doing more with our Greeter Ministry/Greeter Newsletter at church. Transitioning to an even deeper prayer life. Transitioning to hearing more clearly from God.   All I can really say is I am at a great place thus far in 2013. I am wishing you a Happy 2013 too! Make the best of it! You lived to see another year!

Something I've learned from 2012 is that to never set a time limit on God. He can do what, when, and how he wants to do it. I've learned not to give him dates, deadlines or time constraints. Because God is God. Even though he is always on time, he doesn't work on our sense of time. The Word tells us that  "......With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you...... 2 Peter 3:8-9. This was and still is a vital lesson for me, and to so many others too. Hope I'm helping yall out, setting someone free. So no matter what it is you are waiting on from God, keep waiting, it's coming. No matter what, may it be a mate, a child, a job, passing a certain test, a house, or even healing for yourself or your loved one, keep waiting. Keep the faith, Keep Believing. God is there and he is listening to your every need, every plea, every request, every heart cry; He is answering too. Just in a different sense of time.

Be Encouraged!
