A Vision for Your Life in the New Year
"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." Proverbs 29:18
Helen Keller had vision even though she lost her sight at 19 months of age. A reporter asked Miss Keller, "Is there anything worse than being blind?"
"Yes," she said, "It is to have sight and no vision."
Do you have a vision for your life at the threshold of a new year? On New Year's Day, I review the goals for my life. These are spiritual, relational, intellectual, physical, and financial goals. I pray over these and ask for God's will to be done in each one. I hold them in an open hand and ask that God would give me wisdom as to the direction He wants for my life. I don't want to be a person without vision. I don't want you to be one either.
Begin to think about some goals you would like for your life. Pray and seek the Lord's face as you ponder the future.

One morning Joyce Rogers witnessed a breathtaking sunrise. She was captivated by God's handiwork. Truly the heavens do declare the glory of God, just as the psalmist said. She could almost hear God saying to her, "Behold!"
The more Joyce praised God for such a magnificent work of art, the more God reminded her of the many occasions when she and her late husband, Dr. Adrian Rogers, had experienced God's glory and magnificent creation.
Inspired by this moving experience, Joyce began a study of the word behold in her personal quiet times with the Lord. Over and over again she found that the Scriptures direct us to "behold" the glory and work of the Lord---to gaze upon them and consider them deeply.
During this time, Joyce reflected on the many personal experiences through which God graciously allowed her and Adrian to behold His majesty and glory. Mrs. Rogers' intimate reflections ultimately became this volume, entitled simply, Behold!
