2010…bring it!

I have to say I’m not usually one to make a big deal about a new year.  I suppose years of failed resolutions have made me a little cynical about January 1.

For whatever reason, this year feels different.  I have goals I would like to strive toward in 2010.  Some are the same as years past.  Is this the year weight will really come off?  Will I read my Bible daily this year?  I can only go into the year hoping that I have more discipline than in years past.

2009 has been a year of blessings, mixed with some painful lessons.  Every rose bush has its thorns.  Or is it that every thorn bush has its roses?  Yes, I think that’s it.  It’s been a year of change (and I don’t mean Obama’s) and the sting that can accompany it.  Lessons learned, when the sting dies down, can be beautiful.

The greatest lesson I learned in 2009:  Be obedient.  His timing is always best.  Had I been obedient to Him, I could have avoided a sting.

Here’s to 2010…a year of obedience, a year of discipline.  May He grant me the wisdom to listen and act accordingly.
