As I enter this new year

I have been searching for a thing that I want to carry through this new year. I have found a lot of things that God has spoken to me lately, however I still searched for a special phrase, or subject that I will always remember through this year.

Flashback to a week a go when I decided to stayed in my lovely bed rather went to church. I was so tired. I had a very busy week, almost everyday working and on New Years eve, I think, I had too much food and champange. eheheh :) Or probably I played card till morning that made me feel very awful the day after. Anyway,.. I didn't go to church.

I felt very guilty, because I actually wanted to start my new year with God.

Thus, today,. to pay my guilt (heheh,..), I listen to the last week sermon through the Crossroads site (www.xrds.nl). In the end of the cermon, I got struck by this remarkable poet.

….
Father
In all our travelling
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

In our journeying to work and returning
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

Within our homes and families
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

In our leisure time together
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

In difficult situations and conflict
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

As we stumble on the way
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

In the travelling of our faith
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

As we place out trust in you
MAY YOUR FOOTSTEPS GUIDE US

In all our travelling, Lord
May it be your footsteps in which we place our feet
AMEN
...

Wow!
yes, that's what I want!
I want that His footsteps guide me through this year and I will be obedience to Him.
I have been through such a difficult time last year..
I don't know whether this year will be easy, nice and smooth
or this year means another hard-working, tears, and lessons of obedience.
What I know,
God, my father will never refuse to give His best to me.

Read Psalm 37:25, which says that children of rightheousness will not beg for bread. I know I will lack of nothing. He provides.

So, this is my prayer,...

Lord,
What I want for next year is a year
which is not only a repetition of last year
which is not a year of hectic life without meaning
nor a year without making a difference or being different.

Lord,
I want you desire..
Let Your will be done in me


Our walk with God is never a lonely walk
For he walks with us on a track that leads to a glorious destination
