A song I played at least 8 times tonight...

Thank you to all of you for being such an encouragement to me through the years. Another year will soon be past and only what is done for Christ will last. I'm grateful even to the atheists who have stopped by here. You've caused me to grow in my faith and encouraged me search out even more as to why I believe what I believe. I pray that 2011 will be the year that you come to the cross of Christ and see your sin for what it is - truly sinful in the sight of a Holy and Awesome God and I pray that you fall on your face and embrace the only One who paid the price that you can't pay - namely, Jesus Christ.

Thanks to everyone who has commented on my posts, sent me emails and encouraged me to press on and keep running the race. You've blessed me more than you know.

Below is a clip from a song I've listened to at least 10 times tonight as I cleaned the kitchen after dinner. It makes me joyful and I couldn't help but replay it over and over.

God bless you this new year with things that bring Him the most Glory.

I pray this song makes your heart sing like it did mine:

Father
We surrender this past year and give it up to You. We give You our failures, our regrets, and our disappointments, for we have no more use for them. Make us now a new people, forgetting what lies behind and pressing on toward that which lies ahead of us. We give You all our hopes and dreams for the future. Purify them by Your Spirit so that our wills shall truly reflect Your will for us. As we stand on the threshold of another year, encourage us by our successes of the past, challenge us by the power of Your Word and guide us by the presence of Your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus’ Name
Amen

And to the same tune:

Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins were on Thee laid;
By Almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
All Thy people are forgiven
Through the virtue of Thy blood;
Opened is the gate of heaven,
Peace is made for us with God.


And God bless you and Emilio this New Year as well.
