Happy New Year!!
I pray you had a great New Year and blessed Christmas. There is so much to share from last year and I am sure there will be tons throughout the year but one goal for sure is to stay connected and to provide just what the blog says Encouragement for Everyday Living. Let me first explain my absence during the end of 2017. I took a brief break to finish up my fall semester and get acclimated to a new professional opportunity. I am not sure how God speaks to you but for me he will present a challenge either through an experience or sending someone to share a thought that will disrupt me from my need to be busy to see if I am following where he is leading me. He was leading me to blog but I needed to complete some projects I had already started and I was able to do just that. Thank you Jesus!!!
So my year ended with completing projects, entering a new professional space, resetting and refocusing personal and relational priorities, and creating a visual aide to remind me that 2018 will not be just another year. Yasss!!!
Do you have something that you can use as an aid to remind you that this will not just be another year? How do you plan on living out your purpose God placed in you from birth while standing on His promises this year?
Scripture: Habbukak 2:3 – “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” – Earl Nightingale
