New Year 2013
My husband and I had friends for New Years Eve dinner. Along with our dessert, we seek the Lord for His word for the year. Mine was really interesting. I saw four golden candles set in crystal.In the center of the four candles was a golden heart. The second thing I saw was a drum majorette all dressed in costume leading a band. I heard “Have an attitude of gratitude in all things for they are all to Me.” The two words I got were “peace” and “gift”.
I awoke at 6:26 and so I went to Matthew 6:26–
“Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”
I love the heading on this chapter in Matthew: “The Cure for Anxiety” and its subheading on this portion Matthew 6:25-34: “Know the Father”.

Since it was the ending of a calendar year and the beginning of another, I sincerely received this as promise. It was an encouragement to keep my eyes on Him. The Lord was telling me to rest in Him and remain there. Although the year ahead may have worrisome issues, just abide in Him and keep looking upon Him and His promises.
