My little world – just enjoying the ride

getting ready for the new year

2 Comments

Just like all “traditions” we feel we need to prepare for the new year.  Plan out our resolution(s).  Decide on what we want to do, or not do.  Lose weight.  Get a new job.  Find a new boyfriend/girlfriend.  Get married.  Move on.  You get the point.

Rarely do we sit back and say, “How can I serve God better?”

Well, that is what I am doing right now.  I am trying to decide how best to serve God.  How best to be a better follower.  As I have said in the past, I have failed a lot.  I continue to fail.  I don’t always show the love I should.  I continue to beat myself up over this because I know where my trust should be.  I know how best to do this, but I am allowing past issues to hamper my progress.

Is a new years resolution the answer?  Most likely not.  We all know we fail at those.  Heck, I don’t think I have kept a new years resolution more than a few months.  No the answer is prayer, leaning in toward Him instead of away.

I will work on this now and into the future.  Why… well because my life depends on it.

What about you?

  1. I’m with you! 2014 was the first year I included spiritual growth goals with my business goals. They were simple – stay in Bible study with others and attend the annual women’s retreat with our church. Consistently digging deeper into his Word with a community of believers drew me closer to God and more in love with him. I also realized I am not meant to go it alone – I need a community of believers for encouragement, correction and fellowship. I pray God will bless your desire to please him more in 2015!

  2. I too want to serve and be more for God. And it first starts with my relationship with him
