This is what I aim to stand on as far as a New Year resolution for 2018.
CORAM DEO = in the face of God; meaning ….. whatever I do,
….. whatever I say,
is in the face of God – done before Him in full view.
If I claim this one Latin phrase, all the change and goodness that I may desire for my life this coming New Year will then come forth. If I consider every action & every word spoken is done with Jesus standing right before me, seeing and listening, cuz He is…omniscient and all… there is nowhere I can hide where He is not already there… then I hope that my choices of actions and words will be sifted out and carefully considered before I reveal them.
In essence – my goal is to please the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In this, I will hope to love as I have been loved, accept as I have been accepted, forgive as I have been forgiven, and get ready to be filled with the JOY & HOPE that will spring up!
Like Robin William’s once stood up proclaiming, Sieze the day! …
I stand up and say: CORAM DEO!
Will you join me?
I wish for each of you, a God Blessed New Year 2018 ahead!
