Forget the Resolutions…

I decided to ditch the new year’s resolutions because they will in fact be forgotten. But the one thing that won’t be forgotten are God’s promises.

God's Promises

I have goals and dreams, but not resolutions. Because His promises will be fulfilled. Maybe not in 2014, maybe not in 2015, but at some point they will.

2013 was good for us, but I am also aware of the fact that it might not have been the best for everyone. Lives lost, relationships abandoned, children going down wrong paths. Paths that weren’t in “your plan.” I could go on and on. If 2013 wasn’t your best year, I am praying 2014 brings you new beginnings, and the promises that God has planned for you come to fruition.

Happy new year friends. May this be your best year yet!

  8. This has been very difficult year but through it all I knew God was beside me every step of the way. I do pray that 2014 will bring answers to prayers and relieve our hardship.

  10. Great perspective. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions either…I’m more of a goals person like you. But I never thought about it from your perspective. 2013 was good for us too, even though we did have some heartaches. One thing I’m learning is that our dreams and visions look different in reality than what we imagined and that’s okay because God’s ways are higher than ours.

    Thank you for the reminder. :)

    • We had struggles and heartaches too. But you are right-God’s ways are much higher than ours. Here’s to 2014 and that things are better for everyone!
