But when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
How we envision the way the Lord will bless us is not necessarily the way He will work it out. It is our job to be patient and know that His way is only for our good. This is the year to not be afraid of what God has in store for you; to not be afraid of how or when He approaches you with your purpose. This year, know that it is far time for you to use all the courage inside of you to advance and improve on you so that God can use you all the more. Here's to you and your goals in 2011!
