For so many years I really had only two new years resolutions ( even though I swore that I wouldn't make any! )
- Lose weight
- Not be single anymore
But alas Number 2 - well you wouldn't be reading this Blog if #2 wasn't still an issue ;)
So I got to thinking while hanging out solo for a while at the lake on New Years Day what if I stopped with what I wanted for 2011 and listened to what God wanted for me in 2011?
And so I prayed. And I asked God for a word, a leading, an inkling.
Just the irritating sound of cicadas ;)
Hmmm. I know better than this. God doesn't work to my demands. So I picked up my magazine and began to read and thought that I'd continue this train of thought some other night.
'Be still and know that I am God' Psalm 46:10
And there it was. In the lull of the cicada noise was that still, small voice that I think I have ignored for much of 2010, hence part of the reason for feeling like I had a somewhat horrid year. I haven't listened to that still voice, I haven't been still enough to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. That's all I need to know for 2011.
