Let your eyes look straight ahead...

01 January 2012

I've got several plans and aims for this year… one of them is to do more things with this site; that means that there will be tweaks and adjustments to the design of the site, but more importantly more blog posts ranging from opinions and reviews to simple quotes that I've found inspiring or thought provoking. Today I'm going for a quote from the book of Proverbs.

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.

Proverbs 4:25-26

Another year has past, 2011 was a very mixed year for me; with mistakes and success - many lessons to learn. Now as I head into 2012 it's time to learn from last year, it's time to carefully think about where I want to go and to move forward on that path.

Matthew Henry concludes his commentary on this section in Proverbs with the words: "...looking straight forward, and walking by the rule of God's word, treading in the steps of our Lord and Master. Lord, forgive the past, and enable us to follow thee more closely for the time to come." I think that would be my prayer for 2012.
