I decided a few years back that my resolutions would always be adding something positive to my life not taking away. I do the same for lent. In 2016 I "attempted" to cook a new recipe for dinner each week. I think I made it to March with that one. A for effort I suppose... This year I am exercising AT LEAST 4 days a week and focusing more on my daily devotionals. Along with those I chose three words to carry me into 2017- peaceful, prosperous and present. Three words to help me stay focused on what matters.
One of my favorite devotionals from 2016 was Savor by Shauna Niequist. I found some great priced options on Amazon . This devotional book tags the line "Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are." I don't know about y'all but sometimes I get so caught up in how much I need to do and how much more God needs to mold me that I get TOTALLY overwhelmed. I love Shauna Niequist because she is SO REAL. She says what everyone else is thinking. We all have to start somewhere and the best part is that Jesus will meet us wherever that somewhere may be.
Wishing you all Peace in the New Year!
