Parting Words From The WORD…

How do you feel as we end this first week of 2012? Did you accomplish what you had hoped? Maybe you’re like me and you can see progress, but also see the things that didn’t get done.

So what do we do now? As for me, I think I’ll simply toss anything that whispers of failure and rest in Him and His great mercy.

And then trust His plan for my life…again.


…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1

I pray God’s blessing on the work of your hands and your hearts,

  • Thank you all for stopping by! I’m thrilled with all God is doing in our lives. We just need to remember that it doesn’t matter if we accomplished what was on our list. What matters is accomplishing what’s in His heart.
    Happy weekend!

    This whole year has been fantastic. One week and only 51 more to go.
    My faith is in God handling all the rest with His best.
    Uplifting blessings.

  • Yes, Vonda, I’m like you — seeing progress but also things that didn’t get done. My week has been a strange mixture of excitement, hope, and frustration. Am needing a day tomorrow when things click along smoothly, but like you, I want to trust His plan for me again. Thanks for the timely reminder.
