Your Greatness

Our happiness is not God’s greatest concern…His greatest concern is our holiness. It is sometimes in our darkest hour that the seeds of faith sown with tears, spring up into a harvest of hope.

Lord I pray that this new year set before me will be of Your excellence. Continue to grow me, shape me, refresh me, challenge me, love me, test me, examine me. You are the Alpha and Omega of my life. Let me be most satisfied in You, so You can be most glorified in me..

    Liz,

    It’s good to get to see your site on this New Year’s day….. Your post makes me think of David’s prayer in Psalm 139:23-24 — “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.”

    I’ve got to get to shoveling some of that white stuff called snow…. It’s beautiful — and a lot of work. 🙂

    Thanks Margaret. Please feel free to visit when you can.

    I love that passage in Psalms and that is my years prayer.

    Have fun with the snow, we have lots of it here too.

    Hey Liz,

    EXACTLY!!! God’s concern is holiness not happiness. It’s not that He doesn’t want us to be happy but He WILL conform us to the image of Christ. Happiness is secondary.

    Happy New Year!!!
