Happy New Year

Now over an hour into 2014 I am trying to muster something profound from my New Year's Day brain.Well, let me share a verse from the best book in the world:

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90v2

As we reflect on a year past and contemplate the year to come we are faced with the reality of just how short life is as the years roll one into another. In 2013 we have had good days, bad days, some of us will have lost loved ones, some of us will have known new life into our families with the birth of a child. Weddings, funerals and everything in between. As believers we live our lives under the watchful eye of our sovereign heavenly father and no detail of our lives escapes his notice.

With that in mind, as we start a new year, let us live each day walking close to the Lord and being mindful of him in all our thoughts, actions and priorities. Then, we may be those who indeed gain a heart of wisdom and have lives brimming with God's goodness and blessing.
