Excerpt of today's quiet time from Word Life....
Jesus’ attitude about his call to serve God and his relationship with his Father reveals in him an authority that transcends basic human relationships and makes Mary’s indirect rebuke almost irrelevant. Yet he is a picture of how we should all prioritise our lives before God, sometimes having to make choices that may be hard for some to understand, as we seek God’s face and pursue his ways.
It's been a long difficult year... I look forward to the new one with much hope and anticipation for the things He has in store for me. May I look out for the signposts that are long the pathway, lest I find myself lost once again. Happy new year 2010!
