Came Quietly

The New Year has arrived. It came in quietly for us, no fancy fireworks nor parties. With the New Year came a strong desire in my heart to be more faithful than I was last year, a desire to walk yet closer with the Lord. As I woke yesterday morning, a song came to my mind and I have chosen to use it as my New Year vow. “Just a closer walk with thee, grant it Jesus is my plea. Daily walking close to thee, let it be dear Lord, let it be.”

I wish you all a very happy New Year. May your homes be full of love and laughter. May your wallets be filled enough to provide for your needs and somewhat overflowing to enable you to share with others. May your hearts be full of mercy to forgive those who bring you sorrow. May you grow in the knowledge of Jesus. And finally may you silent yourself enough to hear the call He has for your lives as you go about your daily tasks.

With a sincere love for God’s children,

Linda Jurek

    I am asking that God will speak loudly in the stillness of my heart!
