Happy New Year - 2015

I ended 2014 not feeling well. I have been fighting allergies for several months. But I woke up on January 1, 2015 feeling better!

I very seldom make “new year resolutions.” There may be some things I want to change over the new year and sometimes I will state these but resolutions are not what they should be! – for me anyway!

Someone suggested we set “goals” for the new year instead of resolutions.

Weight always seems to be forefront in my mind. I ended 2013 having lost 15 pounds and had hoped I would carry that through 2014… Not so much. I added that back on plus a few more – so resolution – goal – no matter what I call it, for my health that needs to become a priority to me for the next few months.

I found the fabulous web site of His Kingdom Come a while back and did join their “Take Me Deeper 2015” group and resolution or goal- no matter what I call it, I am going to strive to become better at this life as a Christian. I am taking their challenge to do their devotional/study once a week for 52 weeks.

Last year I picked a word to use as my theme for 2014. The word I picked was kindness  - using the Bible verse “He has told you what is good… to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

I not only tried practicing kindness more, but I also tried to notice kindness in others more.

This year on His Kingdom Come I found “logos365” which is the idea of a word that God chooses for me to focus on. Which I have already shared H.E.R.E.  I didn’t realize that His Kingdom Come would have prompts for each month for this also. So I am excited about that so it will come to my mind more often.

I hope your 2015 started out on good ground. I hope that as you think of resolutions or goals for the year that you include physical, social and more importantly spiritual goals for this new year.

Happy New Year!
God Bless you.
