My Prayer for this New Year

There is a song I listen to a lot by a band called Thousand Foot Krutch (TFK) called ‘Running with Giants.‘ There is a part in the song where the singer repeats ‘I am not alone here, I’m not on my own here.’

Those words have encouraged me and those words are still my anthem because Jesus said He would never leave me nor forsake me. That song helped me in my times of weariness and struggles with doubt and anxiety. I felt as if I was drifting from Jesus last year and wasn’t reading my bible as much, felt like I was walking in the cold, in the middle of a forrest or something along those lines, I felt alone, felt as if God was far off when He never was far off to begin with. 

My prayer is to be rooted and grounded in Jesus, my identity in Him and who I am made to be. The only way thats gonna happen is if I spend time with Him and be in His word, not just read the Bible as some book or see it as a piece of literature. My prayer also is that I wouldn’t run when trial comes, that I would let Jesus be Lord over the fire. For so long I’ve always ran from my problems but I can’t do such thing anymore. 

Last year had its ups and downs, but all I know is that God still loves me and that even when I make mistakes or something out of my control gets out of control, Jesus is still at work in the mess and He will turn it around for good and not for evil.
