I don’t know about you but I just can not believe it’s already about to be the New Year! This year has flown by and I am looking forward to a fresh new beginning. I know that we are still enjoying the Holiday’s but it’s nothing like the New Years to renew your faith and be reminded that where every season ends a new one begins. Have you thought lately what season you are in at this very moment in your life? I have! A lot lately, thinking of how and why this season is so significant in my life. Today as I close out Christmas with my family I am excited and looking forward to a season’s end.
Usually, around this time of the year, I am all planned out with New Year’s goals and ideas that I want to accomplish and I am finding it a little difficult to sit back and not plan but it’s incredibly needed. I have decided that this year I will not plan out my goals and instead allow myself to really focus on my relationship with God and what it means to truly understand his purpose for my life. I am not going into the New Year without any goal, I do have 1 very specific goal.
TO CHASE GOD WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND BECOME FREE.
That’s my goal, that is what I am looking for! I want to chase God and see what happens, what I can discover about him, about myself and about my place here on this earth. I feel we attend church every Sunday and Wednesday we hear the same things over and over but we tend to have a hard time putting them into action. I’m seeking answers, joy, love, freeness, wonder through the promises of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I plan to document on this blog my year of chasing God. Learning to say YES to God and what does it mean for me in my career, my battle with mental illness, with my feelings about love, my place among humanity, my desire for travel, my questions about life, purpose, and fulfillment. I want to know it all! I'm sure I won't have all the answers in one year but I am hoping for a start.
A Year of Chasing God--a Year of Freedom!
Questions I would like to answer by the end of the year!!!
- How do I truly hear God and understand what his promise is for me?
- What does it really take to surrender it all and say YES to God 100%?
- As a woman who am I in Christ?
- What is God’s will for my life?
