PPhilippians 3:13-14 NKJV
. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
To all my fellow readers, “Happy New Year”! and I hope this year will be even better than last year. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog in the year of 2016. It was a new journey for me into something exciting that I would love to see grow. Like always my goal is to encourage, uplift, equip and empower moms everywhere. Being a mom is a very difficult job in itself and until you walk in our shoes you have no idea what it is like. As we move into this new year let us strive to do bigger and better things. To walk in our divine purpose and most of all please God.
My endeavors this year will be to do All Things New!, and Rediscovering Me, like most busy moms I lost myself last year. Remember I chose this goal towards the end of last year. I was not pleased with what I saw in the mirror in 2016 as a result I constantly avoided mirrors. Notice I used the word endeavors because it works better for me. Its means goals. Resolutions to me are just thoughtless promises we make to ourselves to change and we’ve noticed in times past how easily they are broken and tossed aside. However a goal is a very organized thought with a plan of action.
So let us embark on new endeavors this year, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching towards those things which are ahead. In order to do this we must seek God’s counsel to determine what his divine plan is for our lives. This way we are assured that we are walking in our purpose and not just out here spinning our wheels.
I hope you will continue to stay with me on my journey this year to accomplish my goals. When time permits I will share my journey with you. I spent the last month of 2016 first celebrating the birth of Christ in the spirit of giving, reflecting on God’s Grace, Mercy and Blessings. The last week was spent seeking his counsel,planning and organizing my goals for this year.
I pray that your journey in 2017 will be everything that you set out for it to be. May you accomplish all your goals this year and be better than before. Most of all continue to let the love of Christ shine through you. Keep him first in all you do and do it with the love of Christ Jesus.
Until next time
“Live, Love, Laugh”
