2010 Reflection

I wanted to share with you four verses that impacted my life in 2010 and several resources in hopes that any or all of them will encourage you.
Ezekiel 36:22-26
“Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Lord GOD, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Micah 7:7-9 NIV
But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light. Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD’s wrath, until he pleads my case and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness.
2 Samuel 14:14 NIV
Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 NIV
When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future.
Here are three great resources for reading the Bible online:
One of my favorite things to ever be associated with is People of the Second Chance.  You can join them at www.potsc.com

Mike Foster has a book called Gracenomics that I highly recommend.  I reviewed the book here, https://davidagraves.wordpress.com/2010/09/14/gracenomics-2/
The other group that I am involved in is Tapestry of Hope.  http://www.tapestryofhope.com/templates/System/default.asp?id=30368

I am not sure what 2011 holds but I am making different choices.  I choose faith over feelings and emotions.

Happy New Year to you.

I pray that God will do whatever it takes in you, whether pain or fire to bring about His deepest assurances of peace and hope that only rest in Him.  I pray that all your relationships push you closer to the cross and that each of us would limp with a purpose.

I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. I am embracing the brokenness of my sin and sin nature, that apart from God through the work of Jesus Christ, I can do nothing. I am a work in progress surrounded by people who love the Lord. I want to know my story and be able to see Christ and myself in others.
