Here I stand at the foot of a New Year and the 360 some odd days lay ahead of me. My pulse quickens, maybe from fear? Another year, can I do another year?
No, It’s adventure! Where will I go? Who will I meet? What will I read and how will it all change me?
I am excited to push onward into this 2011. I have in hand a list of goals I’ve jotted down for myself. I don’t like resolutions, there nothing resolute about them. But, goals….
God and I, well we sat down to discuss some key issues; husbands, kids, education and friendship and this mortal soul named Kelly. It seems He’s got a plan and I’m working to walk in it. He inspired me anew with His words from 2 Peter 1:5-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you posses these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ
And, isn’t that my primary purpose, the point of all these Goals, to develop a deeper knowledge of that Creator so that I can be more like Him, used by Him…. and this beautiful list acts like a compass pointing me in His direction.
Hello 2011! It’s gonna be great getting to know you.
