Open for His Plans

The New Year is upon us.  Less than 48 hours away.  

Are you ready for what God has planned for you?  

Are you open to the newness of the year?

I firmly believe God has big plans for His children in 2012.  But we have to be open minded and have a open heart.  We have to be ready.  Ready for something big.

Has God already revealed to you His plan for your life in 2012?  Has He already directed you?  Don't be afraid.  Don't be shy.  Be open.  When we obey and follow His will, we are blessed beyond measure.

" obey is better than sacrifice..."  1 Samuel 15:22

In these last hours of 2011, spend some time in prayer.  Ask God to help you be open to new possibilities and new opportunities.  Then be ready for Him to bless your socks off!

Have a safe and blessed celebration, friends!

Sweet Blessings~

  7. Jenifer,
    I am ready, my friend. Big time, big time ready. I can remember years when I've dreaded this time of year. I didn't want to jump and wanted to hang out in the year past. Nope. I'm ready.
