Happy New year!! Weren't you all ready for it?!
I don't think I've ever been more ready for a new year to arrive. I savored the last few days leading up to the 2017. Counting it all joy because I know that in all that 2016 brought us one of the most important things that it brought was the need of Jesus even more. Amen right! Hearing close friends and relatives talk about the pain and struggles and even joy that 2016 had in their lives makes me realize how amazing life is. How incredible it all is one year of a life can hold so much. So with that I say goodbye a final adios to 2016 and a grand hello hola 2017 I am so happy to see you. I am ever hopeful for what is to come and with that comes planning praying and most definitely Jesus.
If you do New Years resolutions that's wonderful but I tend to bend more to praying for a word a word that reminds me of what God has for us in this brand new year.
I landed in Habakkuk 2:2-3 "write the vision make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. 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...the righteous live by faith."
If you couldn't guess it's VISION:) This word could not be any more on point for us as a family this year ahead. We as a family are working on a vision setting our sails for God to lead us and I am so excited about it!
What is the vision you are casting for your life this year? I believe living a life of intention and having a different year than the last means creating a vision. Some years we bring the old habits into a new year because we actually didn't do the hard work of making a plan and working that plan out for change. I have so been there! Your life is worth the careful planning friends. So ask God to help you carefully plant it out and give you a fresh new vision for your year ahead. Make this your best year yet!
