This year has been quite a ride! On the verge of a new year, we all think about making resolutions and goals. I made goals last year, but not because of a new year. I made them because I wanted a new me. Lasting permanent changes.
I don't think I accomplished it all as I had hoped. I am a work in progress still.
Tonight, I can say this, that each day brought a new lesson in gratitude.
I am grateful for my love notes from God. I am blessed that He takes time to remind me each day of his deep love for me and His saving work on the cross. I don't deserve His kindness and care, but I welcome it and crave it. I would be nothing without Him.
My goals are the same. I still have much to work through. I still have much to learn. I am still wandering in the wilderness through certain areas of my life.
Many changes have been made. I still need more and only God can do the work in me.
I want restoration in my prayer life. I want to be more diligent in all areas of my life. I want a daily quiet time with Jesus. I want the hurts to be laid to rest and healed. I want the barriers that I put up to come down. I want to find one thing each day that I can be grateful for.
I want more of Him and less of me.
