New Year

Con­sider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and chal­lenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pres­sure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true col­ors. So don’t try to get out of any­thing pre­ma­turely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not defi­cient in any way.” James 1:2–4

I can hon­estly say that 2013 has been the most chal­leng­ing years to date!  It had ulti­mate LOWs and a cou­ple highs.  I enjoyed the dif­fer­ent things I did, met a lot of great peo­ple.  But it still left me with a HUGE void.  So my goal for this year is to com­pletely live my life for God.  This body is a tem­ple and I will feed it with the Word, nutri­tional food, sur­round it with pos­i­tive people.

Sit­ting through church on Christ­mas Eve, I cried the entire time through.  Not only did I lose my fam­ily this year, I feel as though I have lost my church fam­ily as well.

I would list my goals for the year, but I have way TOO many.  Started a weekly jour­nal and want to accom­plish a dif­fer­ent goal each week.

Change, Renew, Embrace.
