Why Hello, 2014


Today is the first day of 2014. A new year, indeed. I have decided to start a blog to help with my New Years’ goal, which is to start understanding myself again.

Writing my thoughts out helps me understand what God is trying to tell me, and I hope in a year I’ll be able to look back & realize how much I’ve learned about myself, & how much I’ve been able to let go.

Ha. Letting go– the goal we all aspire for at some point in life. No matter how far we come, there’s always things we need to set free. Things we need to just remove from our hearts, if not for any other reason than the extra weight they put on our soul.

Today this was the verse of the day: For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19 NLT)

This will be my verse for 2014. This is the deepest yearning of my heart. This is what I will pray for each day in my marriage, in myself, and in my professional life– that God will open my eyes to his path & will create rivers in the wasteland.

There was a time when I could feel each whisper God gave to me, when I could sense each person he put in my path, when I could feel him all around me without needing to close my eyes, or go to a quiet spot to pray. Not that there’s anything wrong with these things, but I use to be on a deeper level in my faith & my walk with Christ. I want that again.

So growth & letting go. That’s why I’m writing this blog. That’s why I’m praying & striving for in 2014. Feel free to follow my thoughts & my journey. Maybe we can learn & grow together.
