Want God's Guarantee for a Great New Year?

Setting goals and making resolutions all goes with new beginnings~like, ok beginning a new year. Being a diligent person, I began ‘the process’. In looking at the past year for things accomplished and things missing, I’ve seen that my first goals have to be for my spiritual life, for the success of every other area does depend on my ever deepening relationship with God. I look at one of the Meditations from Cast Up A Highway and come across a favorite Scripture. I look at it in the Message Bible:

This is God's Word on the subject: "As soon as Babylon's seventy years are up and not a day before, I'll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.  
Jeremiah 29:10-11 (MSG)  

In the “Absorb the Word” section of the Meditations in Cast Up A Highway I find these thoughts with this Scripture: 

Words to God:  Thank You for this reminder of Your good plan, Lord! I believe in it, but help my unbelief, for I need it. Waiting is not my greatest gift. Help me to wait trustingly for Your plan. Right now You know what is happening in my life more than I do. Waiting is so hard! As I stand on the brink, I can only trust in Your Word. Jesus said to give Him our burdens and anxieties. I resolve to give my worry to You, Jesus. I shall focus on Your Word and trust You to handle the situation. Jesus, right now I turn all my anxieties over to You; I trust in Your good plan for me.  

And it is so true! God tells me He has good plans for my life, He’s taking care of me. If I can get this fully into my head, it will be a time of peace and rest. I'll continue to live my day to day life knowing He is working everything out for the best. Then I can relax through trials. Ok, that is the plan. But like the father asking Jesus for healing for his son, I also pray, “Lord, help my unbelief! Help me to trust You more!” The truth is I know I can trust God, but sometimes the stress of a situation seems to block that out, and I need to replace my focus on God and not the situation. Do you ever find that?

Your Word is truth, Lord, and in this new year of 2012 I choose to live my life by it. I will find time each day to build our relationship and my trust in You by spending time with You and Your Word. Then I know with absolute certainty Your good plans for my life will come to fruition!
