How many resolutions have I made in the past and never kept? Too many to count! After guilting myself for quitting, I’ve kicked New Years Resolutions to the curb (they never work!) and am picking out a Word to summarize my heart’s desire for the New Year.
Intentional is my word for 2016.
Living Intentionally, for me, is not watching the world pass watching from the sidelines as a spectator, but actively participating, loving, and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord.
I’ve been reading and dwelling lately on 1 John and the central theme of that epistle being God’s love for us, his sacrifice for us and how that same love should be showered upon others both inside and outside of the church.
“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.” I John 1:11
More of Him and Less of me.
I want to be intentional and minister to others in love instead of being wrapped up in myself and existing in my own little bubble.
I want to set my selfish desires aside and make more time for other people which can be difficult for someone who is an introvert.
I want my relationships with others to be genuine with a heartfelt connection and I want to take those relationships into the prayer closet on a daily basis.
I want to be more intentional in my worship and devotional time.
I also want to minister to my husband in ways that speak to his love language resulting in a more fulfilling marriage.
