A Little R & R

Resolutions, everyone?  How about a revelation then?  I’m not a great resolutionist of idle thought, but give me revelation of a gap within my relationship with God, I’ll report for duty every time.  This New Year I have resolved to intensify my closeness to God.   My spirit tells me I need to; my heart rejoices with the thought.

Where do I begin this trek?  I think I’ll start with my prayer time. I’ve rather become a mite flippant, a little fiddling instead of a lot of communicating.  With a bit of introspection, we could all draw closer to God, don’t you think?

A favorite hymn that always causes me to ponder with wonder:

.

I Know Whom I Have Believed

~Daniel W. Whittle 1840-1901

I know not why God’s wondrous grace

To me he hath made known,

Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love

Redeemed me for his own.

 

Refrain:

But 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.

Refrain:

I know not how this saving faith

To me He did impart,

Nor how believing in His Word

Wrought peace within my heart.

Refrain:

I know not how the Spirit moves,

Convincing us of sin,

Revealing Jesus through the Word

Creating faith in Him.

Refrain:

I know not when my Lord may come,

At night or noonday fair,

Nor if I walk the vale with Him,

Or meet Him in the air.

Refrain:

BUT 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.

.

Happy New Year, my friends in Christ.

Shalom,

Jeanne & family

    • Happy New Year, Debbie! Special thoughts and prayers. Thanking the Lord for your friendship and sharing tons of wisdom within your spirit. Blessings, dear one. 🙂

  1. Lovely photo of you and Walter and an inspirational resolution.
    I get your emails but had to figure a way to post a reply. So I re followed and used Twitter since I have deactivated FB.

    • Sorry you had so much trouble replying, Linda. Gee! Didn’t know you are not here anymore. I am not on twitter as of yet. The photo of Walt and I is an older one but need to get updated one of these days!
      Can always write email. Happy new year and many special moments of peace and joy.
