-But now your kingdom shall not continue; the Lord has sought out [David] a man after His own heart,-
We are nearly coming to a close of the first month of the new year (2023) already!!
Can you believe it??
Well, before we close this one out, I wanted to share a little tradition we Weary’s have as we close out the old year, and as we embark upon the new!!
It’s an Oldie, but I still think it’s a Goodie.
God has Truly been Good in 2014!!
As We approach the New Year 2015, We tend to spend time reflecting on the the events of the past year, and we anticipate and look forward to the New.
My family has a yearly tradition, before we toast in the New Year, We ask each person three questions:
What was the worst thing that happened to You in 2014?
What was the best thing that happened to You in 2014?
What Changes are You hoping to make in 2015?
My Answer for Worst Thing:
It was to hear my oldest daughter, Daen’s broken speech, over the phone after having suffered a seizure. She’s in the Navy and living independently, so please, keep her in your prayers as the Lord continues to bless her and fully restore her health.

I want to thank You for Your Love and Your faithful support.
I pray for You, each day before I click to publish the lesson/message for the day…and I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to teach Us and Lead Us into All Truth, together.
What Changes am I hoping to make in 2105…
I want to take a closer walk with the Lord!!
Not just in my prayer and devotional time and church attendance, but throughout the course of each day…I want to be more like David.
King David is my favorite bible character because he sought the Lord in EVERYTHING…God said he was a ‘Man’ after His Own Heart.
I imagine it was because of all the one-on-one time David spent walking and talking with God when he was just a shepherd boy. David learned that he could lean, trust, and rely on God…in all matters….whether great or small!!
I know how to go to God for the big stuff…the serious issues that I have…but I want to seek God, first and foremost…for the simple matters in my life, too!!
You know…for the stuff We often tell God, -Don’t worry about this one –
‘God…I got This!!’
But In 2015, I want to give God the first-fruits of My Everyday Life…leaning on Him each and everyday because – In all reality, Its Him Who’s Got Me!!
I want to give God:
The First of My Love…
The First of My Morning…
The First of My Time…
The First of My Finances…
The First of My Thoughts…
The First of All My Worries and Concerns!!
It’s so funny that My Pastor, just this Past Sunday, said that He wants to take a closer walk with God. He said he wants to take an ‘Enoch Walk’ with God!!
So…if He comes up missing in 2015, having suddenly disappeared…and First Lady can’t find him…then We will know…God took Him!! Lol!!
Well, if you hear in 2015 that God’s Heart is missing…Tam’s Got It!!
Because, I’m going after God in 2015!!…Just Call Me the ‘Woman’ after God’s Own Heart!!
I’m so, so, so, excited about all the New Things that God will be doing in 2015…and I pray that He will be doing a New Work in You, also!!
