During the last week of December, it’s customary to think about resolutions or goals for the new year. Most of us focus on losing those holiday pounds or planning a new hairdo.

But instead of a focus on our physical qualities, why not think about something deeper? How about some goals that are merged into prayer / wishes?2015 ornament

Read these Bible verses and think about how they might apply to your 2015 goals.

Psalm 81:10 “I am the Lord your God who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.”

God has brought me out of the bondage of strongholds, bitterness and an addiction to sugar. I’m ready to receive all the blessings he has planned for 2015. I’m eager to see what they are and I’m thanking God already.

Psalm 46:10 “Cease striving and know that I am God.”

This is a great reminder to be at rest, to be still and to know God better. My prayer is that my relationship with the Divine will be even stronger this year and I will be quiet enough to hear him clearly. He is my eternal Husband.

Psalm 43:5 “Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.”

In 2015, I want to stay in hope. May I begin my days with praise and end my evenings with a heart filled with thanks.

Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”

Many things about the single life are not easy, but if I focus on WHO God is and remember Emanuel is with me all year long – then I can live from a place of joy.

Philippians 1:6 “He who began a good work in me will perfect it.”

God is continually at work in me and through me. I’m stronger than I was last year at this time as more of the side effects of the divorce have fallen off. This time next year, WOW! I’ll trust God to do a good work in me.

What about you? Any prayer wishes for 2015?
