I don't know what this new year brings, but God does. Four years ago my life was totally broken, I felt like I was nothing more than a left over shell of some used up kid. Then I found out I was not rejected by God, and that opened a door to freedom. This past year has had it's challenges as you can see in my posts, and this fall I lost to family members to illness. They were believers and are with Jesus now in heaven. That I have to celebrate, because His healing is complete.
I am learning to take it one day at a time. I focus on today, God will focus on all of the tomorrows. It is not easy, and sometimes I whine, get tired, want to give up and even mess up big time. But my mentor at church told me "son if you mess up, fess up, and let Him help you get up." He does, and I do.
So this Christmas day, my prayer is that we can all find strength, love, mercy, hope and freedom in Christ. My prayer goes out to everyone here, even those who would hate who I am in Him. It is what Jesus wants from me, to be a reflection of Him. Whatever this new year brings, we are not walking this path alone <><....
