Just opened a fresh composition book and ready to start a whole new year. The composition book is covered in a cloth that we made a few years ago. Our church's mission team made composition books in exchange for donations to Nicaragua! On top of that is my bullet journal. Yes..I gave in and attempting to be one of the cool kids! So far so good! Anyway, 2016 was tough. I put my work and myself first. I was very selfish. Some weeks I didn't even feel like going to church!
And then of course no surprise - Jesus is still right there waiting for me. It's so refreshing to know that no matter how far I feel from Him, He has never left me. A great reminder!
This year is going to take the focus off of me and put the focus back on Jesus' purpose for me in others' lives; serving at church, being a submissive and faithful wife, supporting my employees and coworkers. However, I need to be filled in order to outpour.
I've started to read 1 Timothy and how awesome it is to know that no matter what - as long as you're listing - God will always have a word for you. Btw, I am obsessed with the New English Translation. I don't have the best reading comprehension - and this translation allows me understand it a lot better (don't judge me!)
