This new year began with such a great anticipation of thinking, dreaming, and hoping for all the things God has in store for me personally as well as our family. There is a stirring in my heart of knowing that this is going to be a year marked with adventure, new opportunities, and the desire for some deep spiritual growth.
I've never been one to make resolutions, but there are some goals that I have laid out for myself this year. As I was going back over my list of goals and praying through each of them, there seemed to be a word that kept coming to my mind. A word that would be very much needed for me to see these goals through ... DISCIPLINE.
The goals that I have listed are very important to me at this season in my life. Whether they are spiritual goals or the goal to diet and exercise, there is a resolve in me to get serious and be disciplined. For me, it's taking little steps that hopefully will produce significant growth and change in my life.
One thing that I am committing to doing this year is memorizing Scripture. This was a discipline that I started doing this Fall and it truly gave me a new love for His word and the power it can have in my life. I began this year with a very familiar verse, but one in which I wanted to set the tone for this upcoming year.
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all of your heart.
