Another Mile Marker

01 Jan

It’s New Year’s Day, January 1, 2011. Another mile marker along the road to Honduras. This is my last New Year’s Day in this house and probably my last in the United States. I say “probably” because I cannot see the future. I have given God a blank check to my life. He is free to send me wherever He chooses. If He someday leads me back to the U.S. to live, then I’ll be back. I do not expect that to happen, but, as I said, I cannot see the future. I don’t know what God has in store for me, but I know it will be far greater than I anything I could hope or imagine! I am content with that knowledge.

Thank you, God, for this past year and for the year that starts this day. Help me to combine what You have taught me in the past with what You will teach me in the future so that I will become the person You want me to be. Lord, on this first day of 2011, I give You anew my life. Take it and use it however You choose. Thank You for calling me to Honduras. Help me to follow the path as You set it before me. Please, don’t let me stray from Your path. I don’t want to do this in my power, my strength, or my wisdom. If I try that, I will fail miserably. So, please, help me, Father, to let You guide me and work in me and through me. Let all that I do from this day forth be done in Your power, Your strength, and with Your wisdom.

Help me each day, Lord Jesus, to surrender to You afresh, giving You absolute, total control of my life. In Your most holy and precious name I pray. Amen.
