May you invite God into 2018 at the start and again each day.

May you seek His will and follow Him as He reveals it to you.

May you find rest with Him in this season of waiting–because they are all seasons of waiting, aren’t they?

May He establish the work of your hands (Psalm 90:17), and may that work glorify Him.

When you do not know which way to go, may you go to Him.

If you run, let it be to Jesus, and if you walk, let it be at His side.

May you find that He provides your daily bread (Matthew 6:11), and may you release the other, extra trappings that would hinder you.

May your house be lit with His love.

As you practice gratitude, may your contentment overflow (Philippians 4:7).

May you see the beauty of dreams yet to be fulfilled.

May Jesus be your first love and your favorite friend.

May His Spirit overwhelm you.

May you taste and see that He is good. (Psalm 34:8)

May you know God and serve Him without fear. (Luke 1:74)

When 2018 draws to a close, may you be able to say you know Him better and you love Him more.

May #Jesus be your first love and your favorite friend. A #blessing for your #newyear via @emilyrconrad
