A happy and blessed New Year! Aren’t you glad for new beginnings? I sure am. Not just for a new year, but also for a new week, a new day, a new hour. I’m so grateful our God is a God of new beginnings and of new chances, second, third or more chances.
So today is the day I start my new “spiral” for 2011. I was thinking for a long time what verse to start the memorization process for 2011. Well, and then God led me to Matthew 5:3:
“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is their.” (New Living Translation)
And this is the verse I’ll be memorizing for the next 14 days. After living through 2010 I realize more than ever my need for God. So this verse means a lot to me. And going into a new year, I pray this verse will remind me of that, when I get too comfortable and think I can do it on my own.
So, what about you? Join me in memorizing a verse. Leave it in the comment section with the translation you chose to memorize it from.
God’s richest blessings as we journey on with our God in 2011!
