I’ve started and restarted this post several times. As much as I want to recap 2015, I’m just not too sure that now is the time. Each time I try to write on it, I get writers block. Which tells me more processing needs done before I can write about it. So I’m going to start with where I am at today.
As I sit here on the second day of the new year I see several things. Some committing to the idea of a new start, a fresh beginning, a blank page. Others are struggling in various ways. Few resolving to do nothing different.
I’m not really looking at this as a new start. No, each day I’m blessed to wake up is technically that. This year I’m looking at it a new way. Normally I set out a word, list of goals ect that I hope the next year will fit into. Any time I thought along those lines I was given a different message.
This is a year of advent. A year to prepare. A time to seek. A season to wait on God and see what he has in store for me. This year I don’t plan to try to make it into something extravagant. I will strive to live it from the mindset of advent. That each circumstance is ultimately leading us to the plan that only He knows.
What this will mean for me:
-leaning fully into God rather than my own understanding.
-putting my focus on the One who guides my steps rather than the dark path ahead of me
What this doesn’t mean:
-me trying to force something to happen
-relying on worldly understanding
-believing that there is purpose in everything that crosses our path
What are your aspirations for this year?
