You're Here by Design ~ Happy New Year !
" Just think, you're not here by chance, but by God's choosing. His hand formed you and made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else - you are one of a kind. You lack nothing that His grace can't give. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation." by Roy Lessin , co-founder of DaySpring.
You're here by design so cheer up, this is your year to enjoy and embrace another year of life from God ! How will you choose to live your life this year ? I am hoping I remember to always be thankful for my blessings and mindful that dark times are hard, but a thankful heart sings with joy amidst the tears and sorrows. After all, if Corrie Ten Boom * could praise God for head lice while imprisoned in a Nazi war camp ( because the lice on the prisoners kept the German guards out of the women's quarters ) then surely I can be thankful for the everyday things that tend to get me down , and some of the bigger worries and pains , well, one day at a time they get dealt with . In God's time !
" To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
