Quote of the Week
Happy New Year to you all! This time of year, people are full of ideas, as the beginning of a new year brings with it the feeling of a clean slate. What will 2012 mean for me? What can I make this the year of? For some people, this year will be a year of exploring new hobbies, having new babies, losing a few extra pounds, etc.
I have never been one to make big, sweeping resolutions for the new year. But this morning I was reading Hebrews, and I came across the verse above. I began to think "what does it look like to earnestly seek God?". To be earnest is to be focused, sincere, and zealous. How often am I intently, zealously seeking God in my life? I think I, along with many people, tend to fit God into places where he is convenient.
I will be committing the above verse to heart to help me remember to seek God in every situation, no matter the clutter going on around me. I will also seek to earnestly seek him and follow his ways. This is my verse for 2012.
Happy 2012 everyone, and I pray you all earnestly seek the Lord this year!
