So its 2010! A whole new decade, crazy right?
I have been reading some articles about what will happen in the next 10 years to come and some are pretty funny and some are like real predictions and kind of scary – and they really make you think about what’s going to happen in life… but just a quick reminder: a big part of how this decade, this year – heck, how this day will turn out, depends on YOU! Your choices.
I looked up some fun stuff too about 2010, like the words that have been added to this year’s dictionary like ‘Bouncebackability’ or the amazing and astounding 2009 word of the year: ‘unfriend’. And I even found ones that have been over-used and now officially banned by Time magazine, like ‘tweet’ and ‘bromance’, haha. But in looking up the actual number 10 and its meaning, it has tons of significance. It has to do with completion or perfection. And this idea of wholeness also leads us to another meaning of the # 10: new beginnings. Its used symbolically all over our Bible and our culture – so lets embrace it.
God has a ton in store for us here @ the Loft and He wants NEW and exciting things for you too. Because His goal in us is wholeness, to make your joy COMPLETE . . . but don’t forget we have to do our part. So let’s step up to the plate, step outside the box, step anywhere you want – as long as its following after God.
Think how old you will be when this decade is over! Yet it happens one year, one day at a time. Your choices mean everything, and with Him, we own this decade!
1 Corinthians 5: 17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 18All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.
