Today is 1/1/11 — and the beginning of a brand new year in a brand new decade.
Growing up in the 1970s/80s, the year 2000 seemed light years away. It was the time we looked to and wondered What will life be life in the year 2000? Will we travel by jet pack? Vacation on the moon?
We are 11 years beyond the magical year 2000 and none of the above has happened –and I’m most bummed about the jet pack. Even though we don’t have jet packs, personal hovercrafts or vacation resorts on the moon, 2010 managed to be an incredible year.
I have an incredible marriage, two wonderful daughters and a great son-in-law – I am richly blessed.
As I look to this year – 2011, I know that there is one thing I want to do this year – CRAVE God! I want to fall so head over heels in love with the Lord that I can hardly stand it.
I want to crave Him, trust Him, and look only to Him for my worth. And I love that this year begins with all Ones (well, mostly all, if you don’t count the 20 before the 11) – as it makes me look to the ONE who is my all in all.
So instead of a New Year’s resolution, I want to make a 2011 focus – on the One.
I want to live out this verse from Acts 17:28 In Him we live, move and exist.
What is your one thing for 2011?
