Happy New Year! Goodbye to the year of the (fire) monkey, and hello to 2017, the year of the (fire) rooster! It’s a Lee family clan tradition to begin the new year with prayer and to reflect not only on how we experienced God this past 2016 but also share how we hope to experience Him further in the next year. We all heard a good and challenging word from the evening New Year’s Eve service and are considering three questions to pray through for 2017:
1) What has the Lord done in 2016 that I want to see continue in 2017?
2) What do I want to change for 2017?
3) What do I want to start for 2017?
I found each question difficult to answer. In fact, I’m not sure how to answer these. But I will be on my knees praying through the questions tonight, today, and the next day. Probably the whole week. But I do know that seeking God’s counsel is exactly how I want to spend my first hours of this new year.
May we all begin this 2017 seeking the Lord and His kingdom first with all our might and strength! Blessings!
