Hello Friends! Long time, I know!
To catch you up with what's been going on in my neck of the woods-I moved!! Yep, but this time I stayed in the same town. We had been renting a condo until our home sold in Texas and until we could find a home for us here. Well, we did. We closed on our new home early December and started the grueling task of moving everything ourselves-ugh!! (If you plan on moving yourself, please for the love of everything good in this world save your back, your time, and your energy and don't buy a home with stairs!)
We got everything moved in and before we knew it, it was Christmas time, then New Years, and well, time has a way of stopping when everyone is on break and then when it's over you wonder where the time went.
I've missed you and this space and having been praying a lot over not only the direction of this blog but my life in general. I'm getting glimpses here and there and it's exciting to know God has a purpose and plan for my life. I just want it to happen NOW, you know? But wait I must and so I will.
Have you picked a word for 2015 yet?
I've thought a lot about it and could not settle on one word, instead I'm going for a verse this year.
Deuteronomy 31:6 keeps popping up and with what the future may or may not hold, I think it will be a good verse for me to remember and hold tight to.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them (insecurities, doubts, fears, naysayers) for the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you." (Deuteronomy 31:6, NIV)
One of my goals for the New Year is to stay more focused on God and what He's saying to me. To be grounded in His word and who He says I am.
The more I focus on Him the less afraid I will be to run my race. The more I stop trying to look so far into the future and focus on what's in front of me each day, the less afraid I will be to keep moving.
Also,I have a new series gearing up next week that I'm really excited about and hope you will join me as I dive into the topic of health, healing, and fitness. This is one of the things I feel God has laid on my heart for the new year and want to share all I have learned with you and still learning.
**I want to leave you with this song. I'm sure you've heard it but the truths ring loud and clear. I pray as we make our way through another year we will look less and less like this world and more like Him. Look to Him for our direction, strength, and wisdom.
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace."
