My Thoughts on Today_Wednesday_01-04-17

The new year has arrived. I am stronger than I have ever been. I didn’t make any real New Year’s resolutions other than to love God and love myself. I asked God for revelation and He was faithful. I know that being committed to these two specific values, I will be able to show the love of Christ to others.
This renewed mind started before the new year and I am grateful for that because I wasn’t caught up in the whole new resolution mindframe. No problem with that. I just didn’t want to be.I believe that when things are going well and everything flows, there is the tendency to distance the Lord with busyness. Involvement in regular daily living overshadows our time spent with the Lord. At one point I was moving so much, I lost focus and my need became my priority. Everything had shifted. Until I couldn’t handle it anymore.

I have to say my energy was being used on the wrong things and focused in the wrong direction. But praise God, He pursues us consistently because He loves us so much. God’s love pursues us until we have surrendered all to Him.

As I continue on this journey, I find that in the depth of my relationship with Him, faith, strength, hope and peace grow. This is now once again my priority. It is easy to slip into the busyness of our lives. His Word says to delight in Him and He will give you the desires of your heart. The things you desire change as the relationship with the Lord deepens. I believe this is a key factor because God desires that we worship Him and not anything else.

I have shared some of the hard things I went through in 2016. I want you to know that where I am now, I wouldn’t change a thing. The higher spiritual ground is worth it. I am excited about the new year and certainly believe God is doing a new thing in my life.

(Isaiah 43:19).”Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.”AMP

Last, but certainly not least, I am resolved to keep my writing commitment. I had to seek the the Lord regarding the challenges I faced and do the reading He required. I look forward to sharing more and reading more from my WordPress friends. I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.

3 John 1:2  “Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].” AMP
