For the last few months I’ve spent time thinking about my future and all the things I need to do to make my dreams come true. Despite my quest for a simple and stress free lifestyle, my goals are far from the ordinary. I made a rough draft of how I will reach a few of my goals.
Staying true to the title of this blog, to me, joy is found in purpose. I have mentioned this before but it’s so true this year. I believe this is the season of ACTION. All of my skills, talents and lessons learned should be used at this time.
I don’t believe for a moment this will be easy. It’s as if everything was taken from me so I can cherish it all once I sweat and bleed trying to win it all back.
Developing a sense of gratitude for my blessings but also taking pride in everything I’ve gained. Now please do not misunderstand, this pride is rooted in the belief that through Christ I can do all things and that with his help and the skills/talents he has given me, I can do all I set my mind to.
Set backs are meant to make us stronger. I don’t have a new years resolution which is why I refrained from posting a generic blog entry. For me, everything I do becomes a way of life. At least, that’s what I hope for.
Now, I am comfortable in my skin and can finally enjoy life the way God wants me to.
So I ask myself this question: “What do I want?” What makes me feel my best. What fills me with joy? Honestly, there’s many but for right now it’s knowing that I have the chance to slow down and enjoy what God is doing in my life.
Sometimes I fail to see it right away, but I know he’s with me. He’s guiding me and showering me with his endless love.
If there is anything that I want this blog entry to do; it is to motivate and encourage those of you that are struggling with your faith. Those of you wondering if God truly loves you and if has any purpose for your life. You’ll be surprised to find out that every little thing you do adds up. We are not born perfect and probably never will be, but there is joy in knowing that we get better with effort. So get up and do something.
