Verse for 2023 ~~~~ Micah 6:8

Last year I wrote:

As I thought about these things, I came across this verse that seems to best portray what I want my focus to be in the coming year:

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3

As well intentioned as I was at the beginning of the year, I have to confess, there have been many days that perfect peace has eluded me. I haven’t stopped trusting, but I know I’ve allowed my mind to wander…to go to places that bring anything but perfect peace. I have not kept my mind on the Lord in the way this verse instructs. 

This year, as I thought about what I want my focus to be, I was thinking something about moving forward, embracing change, new things, or the future. But as I was reading, I came across Micah 6:8 and knew that was my verse.

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8

As we step into this new year, I acknowledge my total dependence on my Lord and Saviour.  I just want to walk humbly with Him, seeking his guidance day by day as I move forward, embracing change in whatever He has for me.
