A Better LIfe!


Many years ago God used a star to guide people to a new beginning... a better life plan and God inspires us to look at life anew and afresh today as well. 

When we are filled with agape love:
  • A rainy day can exude sunlight
  • A lost job can mean an open window leading to new ventures
  • The tears cried over the loss of a loved one can quench the thirst of another lost in a desert of pain. 
On the other side of our darkest hour shines a new dawn, a star awaiting our faithfulness to follow. God has promised us to never leave us and He also promised ALL things will work together for the good to those who love Him!

Am I going to settle for a life of darkness, or am I going to opt for a better plan, a better life by following God's star to a new beginning? 

There's a lot of hype over the "One-Word" Resolution for the upcoming New Year and I LOVE IT! My "One-Word" Resolution for 2012 is going to be "Star." I am ready to meet God on the other side of these dark alleys I've been muddling through to follow His vibrant light to a new life plan, to a better life, to my Heaven on earth... 

What will your "One-Word" Resolution be that will lead you to a better life? God desires great things for His children and YOU are no exception and I am no exception!

Michael Buble ushers in this Holiday season so beautifully with these words: 

It's a new dawn. 
It's a new day. 
It's a new life for me...
and I'm feeling GOOD! 

Follow God's star my friend toward a new beginning, a better life, and a life plan that has eternal value!

You are such a talented writer friend. Very well done... still praying over my word for 2012. 2011 has definitely been a year to focus on my word of trust.

Marisa,
Just wanted you to know I still follow your posts in my emails. I am so happy at how your blog is growing.
My one-word resolution is (and has been): perception.
That makes all the difference in the world.

You both are two of my "shining stars!" I'm so thankful for your words of encouragement and more importantly, your friendship! Misty, trust is a biggie... I'm not sure there's another area satan works more diligently. He knows the more our trust wanes, the more distant we are from God.

And, Scott, how appropriate is "perception" for you!? You of all people have every reason to perceive life as "out to get ya," but instead you've taken your dire circumstances and have channeled them not only for your good, but to bless others as well! I can't wait to read your book :))

Love you both!

Marisa

Great thought, Marisa - my word is FOCUS.
Please pray I can actually follow through!
