Happy New Year!

I am not one to make New Years resolutions. I cannot keep them; by February, whatever the resolution was I have already failed miserably. But New Years has come at a good time for me this year because I have only been at our new place for two and a half weeks which means I am at a point of a lot of new fresh starts. Therefore, instead of a resolution I am going to have New Years expectations. I pray that God will continue to direct my path and show me more of Him. My expectations are:

- God is going to continue to provide in every way.

- God will continue to lavish His unfailing love on me.

- God will stretch me and cause me to grow in Him daily.

Those are my expectations. With that, everything else will follow.

Psalm 23:5

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. (NKJV)

Psalm 25:4&5

Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. (NKJV)

Jeremiah 31:3

The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (NKJV)

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (NKJV)

  6. Life is less disappointing if you don't set yourself up to fail. I try to only make goals I know I can achieve because I am truly motivated and you know you can decide any day of the year is the day to get on track with something. :)
