There’s almost nothing better than a brand new journal – fresh pages ready to be filled with feelings, stories, adventures.
And, I got this beauty all ready for the 2016 year – complete with my set of Challenges. Not resolutions – because who sticks with resolutions anyway?
2015 has been quite a wild ride, but I am so looking forward to the opportunities God opens up in 2016. And, seeing how far I can stretch myself, weather or not I can accomplish my challenges, & see how much closer I get to the life I want for myself.
As I move forward through this year, I will undoubtedly add more challenges to the list. But, this is a good place to start:
- Read/reread 52 books ([@ least] just like I did in 2013)
- Bible reading each day
- Praying each day – building up a “War Room” of sorts
- Journal each day
- Blog post @ least twice a week
- Pass my local & national exams
- Finish @ least one written work
I can’t wait to see how doing these simple things will change my life. I can’t wait to see how God works in these areas.
And, along the way, I can’t wait to share them with all of you.
But, to finish out 2015, below are links to some of my favorite posts of the year:
- It Started with a Resolution
- 52 Card Pickup
- Dreams (T@10)
- Loyalty Beyond Reason
- The Beauty of Rejection
- Another Letter to Me
- 31 Days Finding Home
- “I’m Not Nothing!”
- Letting Go – the Single Struggle
- Imagine That…
- Accessibility in Ministry
I look forward to seeing you in 2016 for the next chapter in this book of life.
Happy New Year!
Joining up with Tuesday @ 10 (so, I guess, this is actually my last one of the year). The topic is “I resolve to…” So, I guess, my answer is, I resolve to – Challenge myself.
