Happy New Year 2009

So it is a new year, 2009. Wow, cant believe we are 9 yrs past the big y2k thing! *snicker*  So we have been talking about themes and every year for a handful of years now I have gotten a word about what the year ahead would be. In 2006, I got it for both 2007 & 2008, years of completion and new beginnings. How that has transpired, looks completely different than what I thought it would look like at the time, but hey, God has His own thing going on right? Our job is to follow it. But I will say that the last 2 yrs look different that I thought those *words* would look like. And as 2009, hits us over the perverbial head, I get a silly song from one of those old Christmas classics from the 60's, yeah you heard me right...as crazy as it sounds the words are kinda amazing when you read them...I pray that I can really DO this when it comes to some things that are on my heart to DO.

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

You never will get where you’re going
If you never get up on your feet
Come on, there’s a good tail wind blowing
A fast walking man is hard to beat

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If I want to change the reflection
I see in the mirror each morn
You mean that it's just my election
To vote for a chance to be reborn

So I have a friend who shared her theme about being brave and it reminded me of my theme in many ways, cuz putting one foot in front of the other for me is about the fear that hinders me from doing what God has put on my heart to do. I heard it said once that, you cant be brave unless your scared. It was then that I realized that the courage to be brave was about engaging in the battle with whatever the fear is. It doesnt ignore fear or not understand that it is involved...it just gathers up the God given strength we have been given and moves inspite of it. So as I pray that she is brave this year, I pray that I have the courage to be brave and put one foot in front of the other, to do what is on my heart to do. Even as I re-read the Nelson Mandela quote above, I need the courage to be THAT kind of brave...let me remember that as I get liberated from my own fears, others may as a result too, how awsome is that? Our lives are not just unto ourselves or just compartments isolated between us and God, but we ripple into one anothers lives, effecting them or affecting them, let my effect or affect be one for the glory of God...

Heck, maybe I will start blogging a bit more too. ya never know.

Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed
to be at the internet the easiest factor to consider of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as
other people think about concerns that they just don't recognize
about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal.

Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
