I opened my new journal for 2014 (from Dayspring) and on the very first page it says: fill me.
Being with You will fill me with joy. Psalm 16.11
And, here is my first journal entry of this brand new year.
Fill me! What a wonderful way to begin a new year. Fill me, Lord… but, fill me with what exactly? Everything You are, everything You have, are already mine. Your Word makes that very clear. All Your riches are mine. Your mind is in me. I have a new heart because of You. I am no longer blind because You restored my sight and I can see clearly now!
So, what do I ask You to fill me with? (Poor sentence structure but anything goes in journaling.)
I need the want-to, the will-to, the desire-to… honor You in all I do. Because when I will lay myself down and allow my words, my actions, my thoughts to honor You, then and only then, will I be filled.
Fill me, Lord.
My one word 2014 – HONOR.
