union with Him

it is an interesting day for me today. it is 9:00 a.m. my older kids have all gone back to school and jacob is still asleep, which is very uncommon. it is quiet and my thoughts are toward the Lord, seeking His direction for this upcoming year and asking Him to order my steps in all that i do. i have a sense of excitement for this upcoming year, that a deeper revelation of truth and a fuller measure of the manifestation of His presence in my life will be experienced. and, something "new!"

i just want to live in fellowship with Him and experience the place that Jesus died for me to have, union with Him. i want to dwell there and be changed by His very Presence. reveal Yourself to me Lord! Show me Who You are so that I can know You and show You to everyone that my life touches!

"  dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much abundant fruit. However, apart from Me, you can do nothing."   John15:4,5

Now why do I have the feeling your New Year is going to be blessed and God-designed? Your words have really encouraged me today to be putting God first in everything. Thanks!

Katie said...

Hi Christy! Just stopping by to say hi, and get to know you and your family. :) I think that being willing to hear the Lord is half the battle, ask and ye shall receive. Good luck this coming year!

Tracy said...

Tammy said...

Yes, "new", "experienced" and HIM all in it! I'm feeling excitement with you Christy.

This has been the cry of my heart as of lately too. Just to know Him better and to see things as He sees them.

Just Breathe said...

Sounds like a perfect plan, I want to join in with you.

Laura Brown said...

I'm encouraged and will strive to do the same in my walk with the Lord this year.

Tara said...

I think this blog has been such a wonderful avenue for you to show others his presence in your life. Keep it up. There's a big lost world out there.

Angie said...

Amen! We are on the same page. I pray that 2010 will be your BEST year ever, especially in your walk with God.

Christie,

I too, am going to accompany you on this very same walk this year! I want to see a huge impact in the will of God in 2010 and I want to become a part of it doing whatever I can.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Hi Christy, thanks for stopping in to my blog. It's always fun to meet new "friends". Your children are beautiful. The best thing about your blog....you are not ashamed of Jesus and talking about Him! I'll keep popping in for more of Him.

You send out such a powerful prayer full of commitment and love. Wonderful Scriptural quote.

Tammy On the Go said...

hey friend,
No, I don't mind sharing...back this summer, Elizabeth was fine, we took a family photo and her eyes were perfectly straight, 2 weeks later, her left eye was crossed completely in. They have tried many things to correct it, we are getting an MRI soon to see if there is anything going on in her brain. if that is clear, we will let them do surgery to hopefully correct the muscle. Pray this works, I am nervous, but I know I can trust God with my little girl...

Amen! I love those quiet moments in the house with the Lord when the kids have just left for school & my little one is still sleeping! A day begun bathed in with quiet time with the Holy Spirit is a BLESSED one!

I'm praying too that this year will be the year I'll experience a closer relationship with the Lord. I'm so guilty many a time for just giving him the leftovers. He deserves so much more and I know I can make a change!

Precious moments with the Lord. What compares?!

May his tenderness and gentle grace continue to walk you through these days with more revelation regarding himself as the year passes by.

Great goal and anticipation for 2010. I started reading Purpose Driven Life on Jan 1 to help prepare for the year. Praying for God to do gret things! wb

bluecottonmemory said...

"Dwell in Me and I will dwell in you" - it's a 2 way relationship! And such a good point - but be in His presence - seeking the fullnes of that presence. You are definitely planting seeds - nudging, reminding me of what God's told me!

Blessings on 2010!

I have a thank you over at my place! Come on by!

Mocha Momma said...

Ahhhh, a quiet morning and with the Lord. Aren't we so blessed? I haven't reflected much lately. Thanks for reminding me to do that.

I'm always in a hurry. I used to get up at 5:30 every morning (except Sat)and spend my first hour with God. I didn't mind it at all. Now I despise getting up at 6:30 to get ready for work.

I pray that I can get back to that early morning with God. It's the best thing I can ever do.

Asever, Nannette

It's a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for jumping over from wife.mom.nurse! What a beautiful family you have. I look forward to getting to know your blog and hope that you'll visit me again too!

Julie said...

I too have an anticipation for this year, Christy... I can't explain it but I sense something astounding is set for this year!

Can't wait to see what it is!
