Our lives are like that old clock. The guts of the clock have to all work together before it can keep time accurately. It can sure look pretty on the outside but not fulfill it's purpose (keeping time) because the inside is broken.
Do we look good on the outside yet find our inner workings are broken? This is the perfect time of year to take stock of our "innards". What things need to be changed inside ourselves for the coming year? What goals did we make last year that worked? What needs some more fine tuning?
God is our clockmaker. This is what the Psalmist says about us;
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalms 139:14-16 (ESV)
This weekend we say goodbye to the old year and start fresh with a new one. Let's do a check of our "innards" and find out how we can fulfill our purpose better in 2012.
In Christ Alone,
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
