I Know


As we close the year of 2010 we all have questions.

Did I accomplish what I wanted to in the last year?

Did I achieve my goals?

To be honest, I'm not much of a goal setter.
Never have been.
If I put myself to the test my questions would sound more like:

Did I spend time with the ones that the Lord has given me?

Did I make any difference in someone's life at all this year?

This year has been one of the hardest of my entire life.

Tests, trials, suffering, persecution.

I would not have chosen the year that the Lord ordered for me, but I would not exchange what He has done in my life for anything.

Joy, satisfaction, peace, rest.

So what do I know about this year? What questions have been answered?

I know

the true friends that the Lord has placed in my life,

what it is to be forsaken and I know what it is to be able to count on someone and

what it means to forgive without resolution.

"I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I've committed unto Him against that day..."

period............................ any questions?
