A new year is upon us and the feeling of renewed hope is in the air. The buzz, the energy, the anticipation of what the new year will bring can create a spark. It can ignite the hopes & dreams that got buried by life, but still find ways to break through and remind you of what your purpose in this life is.
Each year I feel this spark. But I don’t always act on it.
My hope is that this year is different. That I don’t just meet that spark half way, but that I embrace it and allow it to change me in ways I’ve never been changed before. But before we can allow such great change to happen, we must first learn to let go…
-Of the fears that keep us from reaching our full potential.
-Of the busyness that life can bring if we let it.
-Of the noise in this world telling us we’re not worthy.
-Of the worry that keeps us at a stand still.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of living my life half way. I want to release it all so that I can fully experience the beauty of this life. It’s going to be a daily choice and hard work. But with consistent action, character change can happen.
-No longer will I let the fear of failure keep me from acting on the work God has called me to do.
-No longer will I let life get so busy that I don’t have the time and space to find peace, joy and happiness in all of my days.
-No longer will I allow the noise of this world keep me from feeling worthy.
-No longer will I allow worry to steal my days and hold me captive.
2017 was a year of rest and refining which I so desperately needed…
But 2018 will be the year of great change. Change to my character, to my days & to my calling. I long to be a person who exudes peace. I long to live my days with new eyes and see the beauty that each day holds. I long to make strides in the work God has called me to do.
I share all of this with you in hopes that it will ignite that spark in you and to keep myself accountable. My prayer is that this coming year will bring you much joy and happiness, seeing that spark ignite a fire in you and your life. Thank you for being a part of this journey with me and for allowing me to share my heart with you…
Cheers to 2018!!
