New Year

January 1, 2009 Suzie

Wow! I can’t believe 2008 is over and 2009 has begun!

I always find it strange looking over a year gone by. This year has been full of ups and downs i must say. it started with beign in a relationship i thought would go far only to see it end in the middle. My family has been blessed with a beautiful new addition, Phoebe Rose, my gorgeous niece who was born in May. I’ve also started at uni which has brought with it a whole new lot of excitement plus many more things throughout the year.

Though it certaibly hasn’t been an easy year in many ways i have been reminded again of how good and faithful my awesome God is!  What a God! When looking back over my relationship with God this year i can see that that too has been up and down. There has been some really exciting times when I have learnt new thinsg about God but also dissapointing times when I haven’t clung to my God like the rock He is!

I have so many things to be thankful for over this year and i just want to mention a few. I have been so blessed by Blogs this year; through friends and well known people and people that I haven’t known but become sisters in Christ I have been immensely encourgaed and challenged in my walk with God. My prayer for these people is that they will continue to write and share truth with those who are reading; that God will continue to grow these people in their passion for Him and all that He has called them to do. Please don’t give up, you are needed!

Also through friends, one particular friend comes to mind. her name is Nicky. She is a relay worker with me at Bedford Uni and oh my, what a blessing from my heavenly Father! I thank God for her, for the way she rebukes, challenges, encourages, loves…I love the way that she is so rooted in the Gospel and encourgaes me to be rooted in it. She will ask me when in doubt, ‘what are you not believeing about the gospel?’ What a question! And i would encourage you to ask this for yourself! And to those around you. Thank you Father!
And now to the new year! There are a few things that I know abotu this year and what I want to happen!

  1. To grow in my passion for Jesus-how my heart yearns to know more of Jesus, to know Jesus more, intimately and personally. When reading a few blogs I have loved seeing their passion for Jesus, seeing how real their relationship with their Heeavenly Father is and how much I want this for myself.
  2. The biggest way I see that this is possible is to get myself rooted in The Word and in Prayer-surely this is to be the root of my life. God has blessed me woth the privilege of being a CU leader and I am so desperate not to be a hypocrite. I don’t want to be one of those people who comes across being godly and having it all right when really my relationship withj God is stale. I want it to be fresh but nI want it to be real! How I need prayer-how I need God! Oh my heart so depserately wants Him!
  3. I want my confidence to be found in Jesus and I wnat to help those who God has out in my life to find their confidence in Jesus. I want to commit myself in a new way to prayer and fasting this year in a way that I havent before. My prayer is that I find everything in Jesus. In some ways I have to admit i’m scared about being alone, about having a year without a guy when everyone else seems to be getting in relationships but I so want to be secure in Jesus not anyone else. if that is that i stay single and am used for HIs glory then so be it.

Again my prayer is, give me more of you Jesus this year in a new way, in a way that is all for Your glory!
