MARCH FORWARD

There’s something about the beginning of a new year.  In reality, anything ‘new’ carries within it some excitement – something to discover.  It’s about a:

·         Clean slate
·         Starting over
·         New page
·         New beginning
·         New resolution
·         Recommitment to broken resolutions

Sadly, not long thereafter, it becomes business as usual. Personally, I tend to go back to my old ways and settle into my old routines.  I want to do something ‘new’ this year and not let the old defines the new.  I want to invite the Lord to reign as the King of Kings in my life in 2010.  To do that means I have to dethrone myself first so that He can reign.  I want permission to venture onto unknown territories with God and take off the ‘safe’ mask if only for the Father to behold Himself.
Father, I ask that you will:

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.
We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push into the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.

Attributed – sir Francis Drake -1577
In that spirit, we welcome you, 2010 and May the Lord crown the year with His good blessings. Psalm 65:11
