Having the Courage to Find What Life is All About

Jan 15 blog post-2

New Year’s resolutions…you either hate them or love them, do them or don’t care. For me, I have never been good at keeping up with them, but I have a really good feeling that this year is going to be an amazing God-blessed year. This year’s resolutions are based on an image I saw on Pinterest on New Year’s Eve. The image really stuck with me so I’m basing my resolutions off of that list!

HAVE HOPE–I will have hope that my dreams will come true this year and that I will find freedom in God’s Word and hope for things that are unseen.

TRY NEW THINGS–I will try things that scare me; things that I hear God calling me towards; to go outside of my box and comfort level.

BE ACTIVE–I will no longer be an idling passenger in my life. I will grab hold of the steering wheel, take it away from the enemy and give control back to God. I will be an active participant in my own life.

SEE THE GOOD–I will look at the glass as half full rather than half empty. I will see the good in everyone and in every situation.

SAY I LOVE YOU MORE–I have often withheld saying this because to me “I Love You” is thrown around with little meaning. In fear of being hurt, I withhold telling the people most important to me. This year I plan to change that and tell those I love that I love them without fear.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF–This is one that God has been calling me to really challenge myself and to dig down deep in my soul to find and face the root of my depression and anxiety. For now my resolution for this is to challenge myself to start the process and ask for help.

CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY–I will choose to be happy in my current stage of life and stop focusing on the future so much that I forget to live in the moment.

EAT BETTER–I will not only eat better physical food but spiritual food as well. I will dig into His Word deeper.

ENJOY TODAY–I will find joy in the little things and be grateful for what I have and enjoy the day even when it has its hardships.

FORGIVE MORE READILY–I will forgive others who offend me rather than hang on to grudges, along with forgiving myself for my mistakes and shortcomings.

READ MORE–I have set a goal on my Goodreads site to read 50 books this year; some for enjoyment and some to improve my walk with Christ.

BECOME THE BEST YOU–Today, I started reading the book My Name is Hope: Anxiety, Depression, and Life after Melancholy by John Mark Comer and it has really stirred my soul to start a journey of self-discovery and to become the best version of me I can be, with God’s help. I can already feel that 2015 is going to be an amazing, life-changing year.

Come along this journey with me! What are your resolutions for 2015?
