Usually, by now, I have a new word for the year. I have my reading list compiled. I have the areas I want to grow in all compiled and mapped out. I've got my plan all squeaky clean polished and ready to go.
No book list, no word, maps or plans.
Just life, lived together in all it's messiness and joys.....one day at a time.
I have all I need for life and godliness in His word and truth, my relationships and the Holy Spirit.
My new motto:
Love the one your with.....I mean really love them. Repeat again tomorrow.
Whether that be my children, my husband, neighbour or grocery clerk.
Not sure where this year will take me but I don't need a charted map because He has that all taken care of for me. Even when I had a map it often wasn't accurate :o)
I want to live what I already know, loving Him with all of me and then hopefully love the guy right in front of me.
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
Matthew 22: 36-40
Happy New Year!
