If you would’ve told me a few years ago that I would basically have an aversion to social media today, I wouldn’t have believed you. I mean I’m the girl who was taking selfies before selfies were even a thing. I would take my purple Nikon point and shoot camera and go to town having daily selfie sessions.
I can’t believe that it’s already May. Next month we’ll be officially halfway through the year! Does time fly or what?! Of course, a new month means that it’s time for a new set of goals.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really planned for setbacks. Well, let me not lie. I am very Type A, so I always have a plan for a plan, but for the most part, I never actually planned on using those backup plans.
Happy April! Man, did March fly by or what? I feel like I say this every month, but I really felt it this time around. There was a lot going on in the month March, and because of this, I didn’t make as much progress as I would’ve liked to with my monthly goals.
If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve always been the Type A perfectionist type. The type who is very performance based and seeks perfection in everything she does. While that may sound like a positive for some, in some ways it served as a detriment to me. It was my secret.
Has there been something that God has imprinted on your heart that you can’t shake? Do you have a burden to get a message across and to see a certain type of people flourish? That burden is your God-given vision.
Are you losing focus? Lately, the Lord has shown me that I've lost focus. I've forgotten His power. I've forgotten His promises. Instead, I've been focusing on my emotions and the severity of my situation. I've taken my focus off the cross and put it in my circumstances. Can you relate?
I love the promise of spring. After the harshness and bitterness of winter, the spring comes to bring the dead back to life, signaling a fresh, new beginning. It reminds me that regardless of what happened last season, each new season is an invitation for a clean slate, a fresh start.
