New Year 2010

Hello everyone and welcome back to Deeper Waters. Tonight, we’re going to not do our usual Trinitarian Commentary simply because this is a special event as we have just rung in a new year and a new decade. I would also like to think my most recent commenter. I do appreciate the comments. Before we get to tonight’s blo, I do ask for your continued prayers that I will become a more Christlike man, the man that I need to be for the future that lies before me. I also ask that you pray for my financial situation as this will be an expensive new year for me. Finally, I ask for prayers in a certain area of my life in which there is much to overcome. Now let’s blog.

2009 has been an interesting year. It had me awfully nervous at the start seeing as I am an incredibly strong conservative. However, what’s a guy to do? I could either cower and say things will never work out, or I could look in the face of danger and say I’m going to make the most of it.

Many readers who know me know the major events that have taken place in my life this year. There have been happenings I never would have dreamed of happening that happened this year. It’s amazing how much things can change so quickly. This year has seen a lot of growth for me and I’m pleased with that.

I looked back some as I watched the ball come tonight and thought of how far things have come. Maybe you did the same. I had a friend with me who remembered the time when 2000 was the big year everyone was looking for. Well now we’re a decade past that year. There were many things some of us were worried about in 2009 and now, we look back and wonder why we did at all. It’s amazing how we make temporary problems so eternal.

Now, we have a whole new year ahead of us. 2010 looms before us with promise. Some of us have some plans of things that we hope to accomplish in this year. We don’t know where this year will go, but let us not look at it with doom and gloom and fear of what lies ahead. Let’s instead take this new year and embrace and celebrate it. Would that we not just do that with each new year but with each new day.

There will be joys and there will be sorrows. There will be victories and there will be defeats. There will be difficulties and there will be celebrations. These are all part of life. Let us realize that. Let us also realize that we cannot change the circumstances in our lives. However, we can change the way that we respond to those circumstances. Let us make it a point in this new year that we will not be overcome but we will overcome. As Christians, this is our duty. We are salt and light in the world and we are to make an impact for Christ.

It’s a new year. Do something great for the kingdom. Enjoy this year to the glory of God.
