This is inspired by something the pastor of my church sent me.
So what do you do on New Year’s Day and into the new year? It seems we are more sure what to do with December 31 than January 1. Should we go for a big dinner on New Year’s Day or sleep off last night’s party?
A few years ago I tried something novel, that I might do again tomorrow. Instead of yawning until midnight, I just went to bed per normal. I found that the next morning, that my home was unusually quiet. With a coffee and legal pad, I could think myself clear about the year ahead. So my plan for tomorrow is to discover what God has in mind for our 2014. A year is too precious waste.
Then he went on to say that our church is going to have a new series about the promises God made us in the bible.
The Bible is a book of promises. I just did a quick online search to find out exactly how many promises God has made for you and me. Some sites said 5,000, another 7,000 and one said 30,000. …….
……Those promises mean little if we don’t claim them. Sunday by Sunday in January we are going to learn how to take the Bible personally and create a prayer list that will bring God’s attention.
MomStart has been floundering this last year. I haven’t been organized. I haven’t been meeting deadlines and I feel like I’m just getting by. It was a challenging year last year filled with a lot of travel, the loss of my best friend at the exact same time my grandmother died. I’ve been struggling with Depression and a desire to even write. I sit on the couch staring at my computer screen with plenty to say but lacked the ability to get the words down on the screen. My fingers never moved to the words in my brain.
I’m excited to sit down myself and write out my goals for 2014 and claim the promises that God has made for me and for my family. I plan to pray more and to pray for my children’s future. I plan to pray for my marriage, my finances and for my site. I know God has a plan and I want to sit down and find out what it is and live it. I’m excited to be more real and write more about me and my struggles and to share it with you guys. I want to write again.
What will you do in 2014?
