Well, I've been mulling over the things that I'd like to do differently this year.. the things I want to be purposeful in doing... So here it goes: (once it's in print, it adds much more to the commitment, right)
One- I am going to follow through and keep up with my Bible Reading Plan (for goodness sake, I have it on my
Two- I will work at letting words come out of my mouth that build others and myself up, encourage, and show the faith that I claim to have.. I will not let my words tear others down.
Three- I will let the light of Jesus shine in me and through me. I will not be a stumbling block to others, but rather a stepping stone in other's journey.
Four- I am purposing to be the wife, mother, daughter, and friend that shows forth God's love to the ones that I hold dear. I will pray for them and encourage them. I will be my husband's biggest cheerleader, not his worst critic.
Five- I am going to get this bootie moving, get healthy and get fit! So that in the months to come, I will have energy and strength. I've been way too tired this year and I want to finish what I began in 2010.
Six- I am going to give of my time (although I don't have much free time these days, but if it's not a sacrifice, it's not as worthwhile, right?)! Let me make a difference in someones life.. please, Lord, use me.
I'm sure there are more.. I am also certain that there will be days that I'll have to come back to this post and remind myself of the things that I wanted to be purposeful in doing.. but I pray that when December 31, 2011 comes around, I will have accomplished more than I let fall by the wayside. Won't you join me in making a difference in the lives around you.. in becoming more of what God has called for you to be?
