Lean Not On Your Own Understanding

What a wonderful year already! We had a great celebration ringing in the new year with family and friends. Church this morning was amazing, as God confirmed many of my thoughts and goals. New Years Day celebration, with fondue and more family and friends, was a lot of fun and super yummy!

I’m so thankful for all my friends and family. I thank God for blessing us with such an amazing church family.

When a new year begins, its important to look back and learn from the past. As I reflect on this last year, I can’t help but see God working in my life. He carried us through a long stay in the NICU with our sweet 1 lb 12 oz miracle! He gave me strength to let go of my job and trust in His ability to provide for our family. Timing was perfect (as it could be) for me to have appendicitis the last month of my insurance: we had already met the deductible. And my husband’s mini stroke after he got his insurance, despite the fact that we didn’t want it, was perfect timing. God was there every step!

He showed us a strength we didn’t know we had! I look back and see all that could have been and what He has done for us.

Life isn’t always easy. Or as we plan! Wait, what?!? But I always have a plan! I know exactly how things should go! Why doesn’t it work that way? Because then we would never grow.

I may not know what this next year holds, how the cards may lay, but I know I serve a God who will never leave me or forsake me.

He’s called me to one of the highest positions one can have. One I take very seriously! Being a wife! Being a mom!

This “job” isn’t for the weak. It’s not for just anybody. I feel blessed to be here. He has blessed me with this responsibility. I must trust Him and lean on Him each day!

Learning from the past is vital to improving the future.

I’ve written goals for the New Year and I’ve posted them for accountability. Be sure to write goals and post them so that at least you see them daily. Learn from last year and make changes.

Thank you, God, for continuously reminding me of my many blessings! Thank you, God, for showing me how to be a better wife and mom! Thank you, God, for letting me know I’ll never be perfect… and that’s ok!!!!

What have you learned from this last year and what will you aim to do differently this year?
