Happy Twenty10

My apologies for the laziness with blogging lately.  I really have no excuse.

I get married in less than two weeks, and the last six have been a whirlwind.  God has taught me more than I could ask for since being home from South Africa.  As always, he is continually revealing the dark parts of my heart to me (which have been ever so clear lately).  Holiness always hurts and never comes easy, and I am certainly no exception to that rule.  But, in spite of the rocky transition and my own sinful ways, I’m excited for 2010 — a new year, a new decade, and new beginnings, with the same, unchangeable God.

Since being home from Africa, I’ve found myself tending to trust in my own strength.  Obviously that never works out well.  Over the past three days, Habakkuk 3:19 has been on my mind.  Perhaps it will be a theme verse for this next year: “GOD, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.”

Happy 2010 to all of you who visit this blog.  I’m blessed and humbled that you actually read what I write.  Thank you.
