2005 has been a year of self-discovery and spiritual awakening for me. As I look back and assess last year’s accomplishments, I discovered that it has been a passive year for me. I was just "going with the flow", so to speak. I was not the driver but the passenger. If I have not experienced God’s goodness, I would view this passive experience as a negative one. Having felt God’s presence and goodness, I actually view it as a blessing. The passive state allowed me to be still, giving way for me to hear and experience God. I thank God for inviting me to taste and experience HIS goodness. I pray that I can share my experience to other people so that they too can feel HIS presence and goodness.
