It's officially a new year! Every new year comes with new hopes for the new year will be better than the one we just closed out!
Most of us make resolutions to try to improve who we are as a whole or the surroundings around us!
I have decided this year will be a year of change for me! I did not make any resolutions at all. Not even a goal list. For the very reason every day is a new day and it brings different things to the plate each and every morning!
I have prayed and decided to take each day and let God guide me to what I need to do and with that change in me the things that He wants to change and help me to see what it is and help me to make myself healthier and a stronger vessel for Him!
I did however choose a word for my New Year! I chose Hope! Hope for health and stronger relationship with God! I want to write and complete a book this year!
However over my hopes and dreams I want these hopes to be filled with Him! In the very center of it all!
Over the course of 2020 I faced and fought many battles! Most of these battles were around my health! Lupus already made me a Target of Covid because I took immune suppressants. So from March on I was in my house and not going out unless it was an appointment we could not have virtual! I was hospitalized several times. For several reasons! I will be totally honest each time took it's tole on me. in more than one way!
For me that is why it's so important to take each day as it comes and deal with what it offers with the word I have chosen for 2021 HOPE!
The definition of Hope is: a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain things to happen. A feeling of trust.A want of something to happen or be the case.
I certainly can tell you that Hope is what I feel for 2021!A healthier year, to have more time using my creativity God blessed me with, I hope to be able to spend time with family that I have not been able to see by summer, I want to see God show up and do big things in this girls life! I have a deep hope as we open our eyes each and every day that Jesus will show up and show out and use each and everyone of us to our fullest for His glory! I want to see His church and ministry grow and be able to reach the world like never before for him!
So as I close out my first thoughts of 2021! I pray that your year is filled with Hope! Have you chosen a word for 2021? If you have share it with me in the comments below! I would love to pray for you this year! I would love to pray that God be with you each and everyday this new year brings! That we can all be a light for Him in a dark unknown times! No matter what the world throws at us! He's not surprised and still there for us each and everyday!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing a part of your day with me! Time is a precious gift and that you shared some of your with me means more than you could ever know!
I am praying you have a wonderful week and weekend ahead of you! I pray that each day is filled with blessings and hope!
