I am Nothing, without God
Sharing what God puts on my heart and my story to encourage and empower others to live fruitful & satisfying lives with Christ!
It's the last day of 2021, I have been reflecting back on the year and realized my strategy of having Hopes for the year instead of Resolutions was a great success. I have always found resolutions stressful and if not accomplished there is a feeling of failure. Hopes on the other hand weren't stressful. Some of the ones I made weren't even ones that I had full control over making happen. Over half of them were checked off by the end of the year and some are close to being checked off. I don't feel like a failure for the ones not check off, instead I find it learning opportunities to see if there was anything different I could have done to make them happen. If so I can work on making changes otherwise I can let it go or add it to my list for the new year.
For 2022 I have made two changes though, first I am being a little more specific in my hopes and second I am making even more. It's a list to seek God for direction on and the empowerment to see them through.
I pray this coming year you join me in having a year filled with Hope & Freedom!
And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night...Genesis 1:16
This scripture was in my devotional last night and even though I have read it dozens of times it hit me a different way last night.
The sun is the true light source while the moon just reflects the sun's light for us to see. The Holy Spirit said it's just like how God's son is the true light source and we reflect his light for others to see.
Depending on the position of the moon to the sun it shines brighter or not at all. Just as our position(relationship) with the Son will determine how much of his light we reflect.
If it wasn't for God I would not be here. Seems cliche but it's the complete truth. I have come close to death a few times, I am a living testimony to God. I am far from perfect. I don't have all the answers. I do feel like God wants me to share words of encouragement and share the testimonies (stories) of my life. I pray that all that read what I write are encouraged and empowered to not give up, no matter what this life throws at you, and to seek God for wisdom.
