As this year ends, and a new one begins,
Who God IS
“I am the LORD, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. ” Isaiah 43:16 NLT
Who You ARE
“Because YOU are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you.” Isaiah 43:4 NLT
What HE created YOU for
“I will say to the north, give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for MY GLORY.” Isaiah 43:6-7
What has God done for you, His daughter, created for His glory, whom He loves this past year?
Give him thanks.
He is so good. Our faith grows by recognizing how active God really is in our lives. He is always working on our behalf. The Word says that Jesus is always interceding for us in front of the Father. If you have started a relationship with Jesus, he has given you his Holy Spirit who is teaching you, guiding you, and never leaving you.
There are things on this side of heaven that He has done for us this past year which we will never know about until we see Him face to face THAT DAY!
So even if this year has been your hardest yet, cling to the verse above that says
“I Love You.”
You are loved by the Creator of the universe, the God who formed you. He has your eternal good in mind at all times.
New Year Bible Challenge
I’ll be honest, I get sidetracked in life, how about you, friend? A few years ago, I was tired of spinning on a hamster wheel, feeling like I was making no progress in areas of my life. I prayed and God told me that this was not the way He desired for me to live. He showed me through His word that I AM His daughter, and that there is a better way. A refocused, narrower way.
We can ask God to make our vision clearer for our lives, more effective to know Him better and see Him more clearly right where we are. To have more peace and fulfillment in our relationship with Him, our marriages, our mothering, and our homes. He will flood those areas of our lives with new clarity and breath and life and beauty when we ask Him and meditate on His Word towards those areas in our lives.
His Word brings beauty to the most mundane parts of our lives! By the end of January, if you join us, you will be folding laundry, or reading to your children, or having a conversation with a friend, realizing you are standing on Holy Ground with Jesus, doing exactly what He created you to do, communing with Him and doing good work for His glory, right where He has placed you!

Interact and be held accountable by myself and others to start this year out remembering WHO GOD IS, that YOU ARE HIS DAUGHTER, and the GOOD WORK HE HAS FOR YOU on the road ahead!
Praying for you!
