2012 is upon us.  It seems the older I get the faster the years fly by.  I am looking forward to this new year.  I feel this bubbling inside of me, a dam about to burst, like an awakening in my spirit.  God is doing something deep in me and I can’t wait to see it in the natural.   I know that God has a great plan for this year.  I know that I just need to be still and listen and then walk it out.

Being still isn’t always easy for me.  I like to have a plan.  I like to know what’s coming.  Honestly, I like to be in control.  Over the past few years the Lord has been opening my eyes to see just how much I like to be in control and how it’s okay to be out of control.  I am a work in progress, but I’m thankful that the Father continues to encourage me along the way.

It’s 3 days into the new year and I haven’t put pen to paper with goals – yet.  I’m still mulling over what they might be.  I do know that family time is at the front of my mind.  Quality time spent knowing each other deeply.  We started taking family walks in the evening and I love this time!  I see some decluttering making the list as well as some reevaluating of our school day.  I also think there will be some changes to the foods we eat.  But I want to make sure whatever goals I put on the paper line up with God’s plan for this year.

So, I’m going to be still and listen.

May your New Year be a journey full of grace, ordered by God.
