This is the year of the Bible or of the Word of God for me.
My plan was to fill these pages with some of the things I have found in the Word of God over the last year. My purpose was to inspire you to find truth there for yourself. I concluded that was not the way to go about it. I am including here some videos of other who have found the Word of God invaluable for life, health, and “the pursuit of happiness.” (More likely for us, pursuit of holiness)
I concluded that the only way others are going to begin to understand that the Word is for them is that God draw them to it. I am not the draw. My experience is not the draw. The Word is intimately tied to a longing for a knowledge of the Holy–and a longing to be holy. God has to draw us into Himself for us to even want/desire the greater gifts. So I do trust that something I say or do this year is the beginning of the journey for some out there who are not currently on the journey into the heart of God.
I will be covering some scriptures which are meaningful to me. I have no intent that these will be the motivators I once envisioned. They will be here simply as a reminder to me of what God has taught and wants to continue to teach.
Moving towards the heart of God is a great adventure. God designed that journey with the support of others included. He surrounds us with those who support us and also those who have need of what He has given us to share. It’s only natural we experience Him in a group, in community, in fellowship with other believers. He wants us touching–touching one another in big and small ways. Who knows when we will need a brother or sister. Who knows when they will need us. Be there for them.
God’s blessings on you as you begin this journey or continue it in 2013. This is His year. This is your year.
