Word of the Month: January, 2012 {Emmanuel}

Emmanuel

: Jesus Christ, especially as the Messiah
: from Hebrew `immānū’el, literally: God with us
Today, January 1, 2012, our pastor John’s sermon was on “God’s greatest desire for you in 2012” and he talked about what God desires the most more than anything is to be “with” us. And I’m thinking to myself, ‘hmm, how crazy is that?!’ since I know for a fact that I’m so undeserving and unworthy. But I also know for a fact that I’m a precious child of God and whom am I to question whether or not what God desires is crazy?! So this year, my “new year’s resolution” is to be with God….more intentionally.

I have no doubt that God is in the center of my life, our marriage and our family and that He is present at all times. However, I do neglect Him often and don’t give Him the time or respect He deserves. No, this is not the first time I realize this nor will it be last. But I’m thankful for yet another chance to set my priority straight and I pray that I improve and do better this time than last.

So I’m happy to say that my greatest desire in 2012 is ‘God with us and I with Him’ so that I can worship my God without fear!
