365 Days of Christ: Day 79
Happy New Year!
It’s been awhile since I posted anything, partly because I haven’t been taking pictures, and partly because I’ve been in sort of a slump lately.
Anyways, despite having an awkward start to the new year, I’m glad I can look forward to things to come. Since I don’t even remember my resolution for 2011, I’m not going to bother making one for 2012, but what I will treasure is learning to love God more everyday.
Even though there weren’t kisses at midnight or champagne being poured, I’m glad to have finished the year. The year was full of new challenges, changes, joy, laughter, friendship, and love. I don’t ask God for an easier year, but rather a tougher one. I want to be able to see how God can test me and how I would respond to the trials he throws at me. I want to be a stronger person.
We all want blessings and happiness, but on top of that, I want more reasons to praise God even in the difficulties.
He is my umbrella in the rain, protecting me from the cruelty of the world.
He is everywhere I go, and he’ll never leave me.
It’s nice to know that the world will fail us, and God is the only one that will remain the same.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
