New year: new hope

It’s a new year Lord and, generally speaking, new years usher in alongside them, new hopes. Hopes that this year will be better than last, that this year I glorify you with my life, that this year I will be a better wife, parent, daughter, friend, a better steward of my body and my finances. I hope you will return this year Lord. I hope and pray that America will turn back to you. That we would choose the way of light rather than the way of darkness and that we would share that light with others. Give us wisdom as we enter this new year to not waste our lives, but rather to make them count for you and for your kingdom.
