I love a fresh start. A clean state. A do-over, if you will. Perhaps that’s why I like contemplating a new year? I think a new year coincides with a new start. It gives me that mental pause to plan and be intentional about doing life better; better than the year before…
But sometimes life can be so unbearably difficult that I can’t even imagine improving upon it. When I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, the notion of me growing into a new and improved daughter of the King, a wife, a mom, a homeschooling mom, and a woman in ministry is something I can’t even fathom. Sometimes my life’s circumstances leave me feeling like I’m drowning and I’m a failure at everything. And I think to myself, “Why bother planning when I know that I can’t muster up enough self-control, discipline, and motivation to follow through on all that I wrote down?”
Today I’m talking about my Savior and a New Year over at A Biblical Marriage. Follow me there, won’t you?
Live a poured out life for Christ,
