Living in the Light

2013. It’s here. Do I dare to resolve, to set goals, to change? Rather than a resolution, I choose a theme, and it goes something like this:

Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation;

O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!

For You are the God of my strength; why have you rejected me?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;

Let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling places.

Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy;

And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

Why are you in despair, O my soul?

And why are you disturbed within me?

Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,

The help of my countenance and my God.

– Psalm 43

A year led by the very light of God, spending time in his presence, and finding joy when I go there, will certainly leave me changed. Here’s to the continuing journey of becoming more like Jesus.
