I would love to say I am welcoming 2010 with a new perspective and I am not sad at all to say goodbye to 2009. With 2009 came many rough spots and the healing of a broken heart. Though my heart is still a little sad, I am definitely seeing the Lord's hand in His decision. In November I made a very poor choice that was a rude awakening for me. I look back just a few months later to see how the Lord was giving me a second chance to turn things around. I have not desired a relationship with the Lord for the past several months. I honestly felt abandoned and angry. Well, November 13th was the day all of that nonsense changed for me. I have learned that I need accountability. I need someone to walk along side of me and guide me in a relationship with the Lord and to tell me His truths that I so often don't believe. Why is it that I will believe the enemies lies over our HOLY and Precious Heavenly Father? My battle is definitely in my mind. And it is definitely a spiritual battle that is raging in and around me all the time. That is why it is so important to stay in direct contact with our Jesus.
I started reading a book called, "I'm Not Good Enough...and Other Lies Women Tell Themselves" by Sharon Jaynes. Though I am taking my sweet time reading it, it is a FANTASTIC book! It is filled with such wonderful scriptures and God's truth, just what I need.
I would love to hear of what your 2010 spiritual goals are, please let me know! Here are mine:
- Find contentment in:
- My career
- My singleness
- Seek the Lord daily even when I don't feel like it
- To meet Jesus in a way I never have before
- To experience a true Spiritual Awakening
- To start living the Fruits of the Spirit
2 Chronicles 7:14
"If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
1 John 5:14,15
"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him."
I look forward to seeing more of the positive things the Lord will do in my life in 2010! I am hopeful to be more faithful at blogging too...we will see. :)
