As a new year starts many consider setting goals.
As I consider my goals, I can’t help but consider the One who is my ultimate goal… my aim always, but articulated and affirmed in my One Word 2018.
As we move forward into all God has for us in this new year, may we affirm and acknowledge Him, trusting His purposes and plans will always come to pass. May our will be in harmony with His.
Jesus, you are my body…
I thank you for a body to step into time and life today
To live and move and have my being
upon this good earth,
being with the ones you have chosen for me
to walk alongside, this side of eternity
May I make choices in the time
you have given that show I esteem
you above all else. I thank you that I am
fearfully and wonderfully made-
fearfully and wonderfully made!
Jesus, you are my mind…
I thank you for the mental and intellectual capacities
you have given me- I praise you that the power
to be transformed and continually renewed day by day
comes from intimacy with you-
may I never neglect the reality of your
presence and power within me, for I have your mind
and you have said it…
this great freedom that you bring has come
at great cost to you, my King-
at great cost to you, my King.
Jesus, you are my heart…
I thank you that I have a new heart empowered
to love like you, for you are love, and I am
your expression of love here today.
May I learn what it means to love like you
have loved me, withholding nothing, despite the lack
of love, gratitude, mercy extended or returned…
May your love, be evident in my everyday expressions
among common folks in ordinary places
Lord, who loves like you?
Lord, who loves like you?
Jesus, you are my spirit and soul,
Thank you, Lord, Mighty God, Savior, Prince of Peace-
You alone still my stirred waters,
You alone are my peace amidst the whirlwinds,
floods, and avalanches of this life.
You extend your hand to me though I am sinking
walking on waters, you lift me from the depths.
Never alone am I for you alone uphold me
forever and ever by your right hand,
forever I am yours,
forever I am yours.
