…of a New Year.
Are you prepared?
Each of us will undoubtably have a “precipice moment” this year.
Standing at the brink of something you did not expect.
An event, an action, a word… will all of a sudden place you there…on the edge.
My children have oft heard me utter:
“You never know what you are going to wake up to.”
“Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.” (James 4:13)
How do you prepare for those moments?
Every hour. Of every day.
“A man reaps what he sows.” (Gal. 6:7)
What you do, and what you think, day after day, will determine your response at the precipice moment.
“So as a man thinketh in his heart, so he is.” (Pro. 23:7)
“Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.”
What are you thinking on these days?
“Finally brethren, whatever things are pure, lovely, true, praise worthy…think on these things.” (Philippians 4:4)
What are you reading?
What are you listening too?
What are you looking at?
What are you engaging in?
Is it growing you in… Love? Joy? Peace? Patience? Kindness, Goodness….
“The fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.” (Gal. 5: 22-23)
What are you trusting in?
“I have trusted in your loving kindness.” (Psalm 13:5)
Is it true?
“Thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)
Can it really sustain you?
“Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me. “(Psalm 54:4)
Will it get you to the other side?
“I sought the Lord and he delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 43:4)
