Happy New Year !! What a great time to start fresh. I am not big on resolutions but I do have things to improve or things I need to put as priority in my life. As a Christian it is easy to get discouraged when things do not go our way when we feel we are doing right in the eyes of the Lord. In fact regardless if we are Christian or not this can also be the case. I do not like to share my personal struggles to the entire internet but will be more open than usual to share my struggles and see how God will move in my life and maybe this will encourage others to seek God first.
I have not always done a good job of seeking God first. Like human nature we all have a tendency to put ourselves as # 1. Of course we all come from different backgrounds and life experiences, some of us are independent while others are co-dependent, some, all about themselves and making themselves happy while others try to please others, so they put others first and forget about their needs. What ever your background (social or psychological) life is about a balance, it is a constant strive to maintain this balance and frankly it can be exhausting. Getting to know yourself is one of the best things you can do.
Let’s get to know ourselves, what can bring peace, happiness and contentment. Also realize that our Joy is not found in others but in Jesus Christ. We are on this earth for a purpose and if we think it is to meet a husband, make money, buy things, party, ect. we are sadly mistaken. It is to serve Christ and Serve others as Christ did. Also to minister to those who do not know him. We all have our ways of ministering.
Let’s redefine this year !
