The Last Day of the Year

Today we say goodbye to 2012, and at midnight many will still be awake to welcome in the New Year of 2013!  This past year held many changes for our family, areas that have taken me on a path that I didn't ever imagine we would go, yet I'm thankful God has opened the doors He has. He has brought healing, and closure in unexpected ways. He has uncovered hidden secrets, and enabled me to step forward toward love and relationship.
He continues to bring healing to our family. And, to show me areas of tremendous blessings. Each day He has stretched me beyond my comfort zone, He has whispered to me to speak for Him, to be a lover for Him,  and to allow Him to control the center of my soul. I know, that 2013, will stretch me even more, in areas of trust, faith, and love.
This morning I read in Psalms 139 again, and these verses stood out:

Is there any place I can go to avoid Your Spirit?
To be out of Your Sight?
If I climb to the sky, You are there!
If I flew on morning's wings, 
to the far western horizon
you'd find me in a minute-
You're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, "Oh! He even sees me in the dark!
at night I'm immersed in the light!"
It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;
night and day; darkness and light, they're all the same to you.

2012 offered me some pretty dark days; it was not my favorite year. But, through the dark days, I learned so much about the presence of God. Because His Spirit dwells deep within me, there is no darkness! I may feel like it's pretty dark, but it's not. His light is there, and He will always show me the way. He is The Door and His Voice is always speaking to me, calling me in the direction He wants me to go, through every trial, all obstacles, every corner. And, as I make my way, in His Light, blessings are flowing, territory is growing, love is expanding, I am learning, Light is shining. It may not always feel like it, but God says it is true. He sees me, I am immersed in the light!
Say That Again, Jesus, You are everywhere, I cannot avoid You. Light surrounds You, and You are rooted in me. Take me into 2013.
