Happy New Year 2013!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

There were fireworks here in the neighborhood last night at midnight. I heated up a bowl of homemade chili and called a friend. That was New Year's celebration. Myself, I am happy it's a new year. 2012 was not a good year.

My mantras for 2013:


2. You don't get what you want; You get what you work for.

3. Move Your Feet Before You Eat.

I did not finish my SMART Goals. Will give myself til Jan 15th.

My scripture for last year was:
Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful.
— Romans 12:12 NLT

My scripture for this year is:
This is what the LORD says—He who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
— Isaiah 43:16, 18-19

That is where the title of the famous, much beloved devotional, "Streams in the Desert", comes from; streams in the wasteland.

And Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 is my prescription for 2013. Do not dwell on the past. This is a new year, that book of my life or scroll of my time is closed, I am not looking back, instead I am exuding "successful positivity" from every pore, every day, and on days I don't feel it I will fake it til I make it. He is (yes He IS!) already doing this, He is already making a way for me in the wilderness which I have been so thankful for and have commented on in my status; and I am on the lookout for His new streams in the desert in 2013. He is doing a New Thing in my life and I am thankful. Goodbye 2012; welcome 2013!

Lucky 13! I am blessed! I learned a new thing yesterday that really blessed me: God Watch. I am on a God Watch in 2013! Will blog about that tomorrow.

Happy New Year to each of you dear SparkFriends!

    Interesting, I was considering these verses in Isaiah as my verses for the year, too, but haven't decided.

    Last year's verse for me was Psalm 16:11, Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. The year before was Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    I'm still working on my goals for the year as well.

    I love the Streams in the Desert devotional.

    Here's to a 2013 full of blessing.
