Like all moms I relish those quiet morning times when I’m able to lay in bed undisturbed. I can pray and focus my mind as God whispers into my soul. It doesn’t happen often, but a few days ago I met with God during this time of profound peace.
I had been praying for wisdom about what to write and share on this blog in 2017. I had pretty much run out of ideas and knew that there was a lot that I was missing. As I prayed, I trusted God to bring new ways to share His Word with others here on this blog.
The bible says in James 1:5 that if any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
God never disappoints.
He chose this quiet time to flood my mind with what topics I needed to study more in depth to prepare my heart for 2017. As I wrote each of these down, He moved in my heart to share what I was learning during my quiet/study time.
At the beginning of every year, I think about how much change occurs in just twelve months. I believe that by living with purpose that we can walk through each of these changes with God without losing our focus on what truly matters.
More than anything, I want to live with purpose in 2017, so I hope to write a post on each of these topics for each week in January as a way to prepare for the rest of the year.
It is my prayer that you will join me as I share what I’m learning through God’s Word in the following areas:
- daily worship
- building healthy relationships
- holding on to His promises
- moving away from distractions
- the importance of evaluating ourselves
I want to welcome His presence into my life today and every day by focusing on these important areas of my life. Won’t you join me?Walking in Grace,
