One Little Word


Follow.

That is my word for 2010. I desire to follow Jesus daily at each and every turn. To obey like He did. To serve like He did. To love like He did. To be honest, it kind of scares me.

Jesus' obedience led Him to the cross.

His service got His hands dirty.

His love meant laying down His life for His friends.

Am I ready to follow Him there?


I John 2:6 "Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did."

:) Last night the kids were asleep, my husband and I were just not feeling the "let's make a new years plan" feeling. We looked at each other and he said: what's the plan for next year? Follow God. Ok? Ok.

And then we went to sleep and that was it! :)

In the past we have talked about year goals etc. I guess this year we were keepign it simple. ;)

I love that verse. I discovered it a few years ago and it is now one of my favorite. May 2010 indeed find you following Him!

Move in close, seek seeing Him, take HIM VERY seriously, obey . . . I love it. No wonder I love looking at sheep.
