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.
