He who lives without prayer – he who lives with little prayer – he who seldom reads the Word – he who seldom looks up to heaven for a fresh influence from on high – he will be the man whose heart will become dry and barren; but he who calls in secret of his God – who spends much time in holy retirement – who delights to meditate on the words of the Most High – whose soul is given up to Christ – such a man must have an overflowing heart; and as his heart is, such will his life be. – Charles Spurgeon
” And you shall remember the whole way that the LORD your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.” – Deuteronomy 8:2-3
Are you humbled by what God has done for you in the years past?
We recognize very quickly the influence that we have on other people. As I reflect back on 2012 I’ve never realized the impact on lives that I have encountered here on the site and the lives that I have impacted in the real World have been astonishing for my ministry and as for myself. We Christian’s are all in this thing together; build up one another, and I am proud that I have been a part!

As 2013 begins, I’m ecstatic. The challenges that I have been up against this year and have completed, I am humbled. I believe that God has big plans for you and I this year of 2013. Have you stepped into your fullness and potential? That will be one question that I will bring up in future blogs. My vision for this ministry of 2013 should be the vision for every Christian. Seek the lost!
” For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.” – Psalms 149: 4
With 2013 being here and with having over a little 1,200 views since I started in October of 2012. I would like to say that I am humbled for the support that I have seen on this blogsite. I hope that I have impacted your walk with Christ and for you to “Be Ready, Stay Focused and Never Look Back” the word that I heard so clear one day as a reminder of how close His coming is.
Let 2013 be a year that you are humbled by God! Be bold and stand upon the Rock, so many Christians are afraid to speak out the Truth. Let your light shine! This may be the year of Christ’s return, who knows! nobody. Let us have an overflowing heart as we transition into 2013.
As in the words of the late Henry Ward Beecher ” And should it be our last year, let us make such timely preparation, that at whatever hour the summons comes, we may depart gladly, rise with triumph, and take hold of immortality in Heaven.”
