Heaven's Blessing

"A New Year's resolution is a tradition, most common in the western hemisphere but also found in the eastern hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement." 

The only problem with this tradition is that the outcome is based on human willpower and resolve. In fact, most New Year's resolutions never come into being. "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."

What if the God who created you wanted to make a promise to you as we move into 2015? God's promise would be based on His power and ability to do "exceedingly abundantly above all that we could even ask or think."

Several weeks ago, I had fallen asleep listening to music through the ear-buds of my iPhone. As I came out of deep sleep the words from "Heaven's Blessing" by Alberto and Kimberly Rivera entered into my mind and heart. It was a moving experience because it was as if God was speaking to me about His incredible plans ... His New Year's plan for me (if you will). I was very moved.

I've listening to "Heaven's Blessing" a number of times since then and even shared it with my coworker, Mark, last Thursday afternoon. I told Mark that I sensed it was a promise from God for me for 2015. After hearing it, Mark asked if it could be it could be his promise as well. I said, "yes, I believed it could for him as well."

So yesterday I made "Heaven's Blessing" into a video presentation so I could share it with you as well. I invite you to consider if God might be speaking to you through this incredibly moving song.
