Today, I am taking all of my Christmas stuff down and getting my house cleaned up. I am ready to go in to the New Year with a clean, fresh start and house!! 2012 has been very challenging for us. As I sit reflecting this morning with my coffee I am so thankful that even though I have had a lot to go through, God has been there with me every step of the way!! There has not been a challenge that he hasn’t helped us overcome! What was even more wonderful is that we got to end the year with an absolutely amazing Christmas!
So, as we go into 2013 I am shifting some of my priorities. My focus is going to be more on nurturing and taking care of my family and the House of God!! I am bad about getting involved in too many things! I want to do as much as possible, which spreads me too thin and has a bad effect on my physical, emotional and spiritual health. I have found that it also leaves me unfulfilled. You see, when I don’t have the time to do what it is God has called me to do it leaves me filling unfulfilled! I also need margin time so that when people have needs, I am available to care for them. I can get too busy doing so many things that I am not able to care for people! I miss many opportunities that way!
I have this incredible feeling that for my family and church, 2013 is going to be filled with greatness!!! I hope you are filled with hope and a great expectancy for the New Year!! Don’t lose strength or hope!! So, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and expect favor only He can give!!
