* NEW YEAR 2012 *
Written by Johanna Stang Hobrath, 12/29-31/2011
We stand before New Year 2012. In this economic uncertainty, many people will question “What will the New Year bring?” When we continue to reminisce about Christmas 2011, we may still rejoice that our SAVIOUR, KING of kings, and LORD of lords, the LORD JESUS CHRIST was born in a humble stable in the town of Bethlehem some 2000 years ago.
May I also reiterate and state: “What will the New Year 2012 bring?” The fact is that you and/or I have a New Year that will be filled with upcoming events. If you and/or I keep a journal of the upcoming events, what will those pages contain? Hopefully they will be filled with reminders of the wonderful Promises from the Word of God and answers to prayer petitions.
Also, those pages may contain happenings that are favorable and/or unfavorable. When we think about humanity, we may conclude that people are people. Personalities are personalities. However, the personality that I want to emulate and the personality that I must emulate is the Lord Jesus Christ. It is important, for this New Year of 2012, to follow the footsteps of the Saviour. Am I perfect yet? Are you perfect yet? Will I be perfect yet? Will you be perfect yet?
Within this newsletter, I am also sharing many of my thoughts of today, December 29, 2011. Today I want to share a particular blessing. (Of course, there are many other blessings that were received.) This morning (12-29-2011), I reviewed a beautiful (*) calendar that was given to me as a Christmas present. As I began looking at the beautiful picture that appeared for the month of January 2012, the following text reads:
“This coming year of your life is in the hands of a faithful God.”
PSALM 1:2 “HE LEADS ME BESIDE QUIET WATERS, HE RESTORES MY SOUL!”
(*) The beautiful calendar is “An Inspirational DaySpring Calendar - Featuring Artwork by Todd Williams - and is entitled “HE RESTORES MY SOUL”
May the Year 2012 be a year when I learn more about My Mentor, the LORD JESUS CHRIST and permitting the HOLY SPIRIT to direct my daily life.
ISAIAH 58:11 states:
“The LORD will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”
Additional Thoughts by Johanna Stang Hobrath:Because the New Year affords new challenges in life, I, as a Christian writer, will also apply the following:
Payer is very important in my daily life. Also, reading and researching the Bible is important. The second web page of “Quotations From JSH” speaks about a poem and reads as follows:
~ THE PRAYER WALK ~
This morning I walked the prayer walk with My Lord
He spoke to my heart while tears stained my eyes
I thanked Him for the saints that pray for me
And for His Blessings that He provides.
Lord, let me walk with You on mountain heights
Lord, let me walk when through valleys I must be
Lord, walk with me forever
Then some day we will walk throughout Eternity!
