Saying goodbye to 2012 came with open arms and many cheers. 2012 held many tears and very few bright moments as it was a “winter” season-the darkest, longest, hardest, and most miserable year. I survived…and that’s the miracle I rejoice in because I am still standing and I love Jesus with all my heart. A reason for surviving 2012 was finding life in the Words of Jesus. By renewing my heart, mind and soul I discovered real hope to strengthen my soul. Moment by moment I gained strength for the day.
All I hear swirling around the past few days is, dreams, goals, idea, and visions for 2013. When evaluating the coming year my heart wasn’t in a place to set goals or dream big. This year it didn’t feel right as it felt “me” focused. Though I do have dreams and goals, It’s not where I am placing my time or energy this year. I want to fix my eyes on Him, Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith. (Heb. 12:2)
I have one hearts desire for 2013, to be rooted in truth. The Word. The living and active truth of the Bible. The words that “cuts between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.” The living truth that, “exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”
When I am connected to my Creator my life can overflow so I able to love more, do more, dream bigger, write better, be more creative, show grace, and share hope.
I want to drench my soul in the Word that gives life, perspective, healing and hope.
In 2013 I want more Jesus.
Even though I am still walking in the wilderness I have faith and am believing Isaiah 43:19 for 2013,
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. – Isaiah 43:19
This is a digital chalkboard with real pictures of passages of scripture from my Bible I designed for myself for 2013….wanted to share 🙂
