“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them” — Thomas Merton

I sure don’t know, but I’m pretty excited to see it unfold. There’s great potential for major change in the coming year, let’s not miss what God is up to by insisting things stay the same in our lives. There is always more of Him to be had.

Today has the potential to be remarkable. There’s no reason it has to be mundane, hum drum or like any other day. This could be the day you’ve been waiting for. Is there something in your life you’ve been withholding from the Lord? Something that in your hands is a burden but in God’s hands will be a blessing? Have you been afraid to trust God with this for fear of change or what others might think? This could be the day you are set free, the day you move into a more trusting intimate place with Him. Father, please give us the wisdom and everything else we need to make this day significant.
