The Journey Begins

With a cheer, firecrackers, and Carson Daly, the new year was brought in. The anticipation of a year filled with many opportunities and growth is stronger this year than it has in the past for me. We have begun to set goals we want to accomplish, some big and some little, and today begins the journey.

The journey isn’t going to be easy, however. In fact, some days it’ll get to the point when we might just not do what ever it is we have set out to do. In a week the passion and desire will get less and less and pretty soon we will have forgotten all about the goals we made and we will continue into 2013 the same as we did last year.

And the year before that.

And the year before that.

And so on and so forth.

But, we don’t have to let defeat be the only answer. Sure, the excitement of the new year and new goals will wear off, but that shouldn’t keep us from stopping. That shouldn’t be the reason we look back on December 31, 2013 and wish 2013 had been different. Because when I look back one year from now, I want to see where i have gone, what I have done, and how God did it all through weak little me. Some of my goals aren’t even big, but I know I will benefit from getting into the habit of doing them.

So this year, the year 2013, let it be the year we accomplished our goals. Let it be the year we kept on moving even when everything in us wanted to stop. Let it be the year God used us in mighty ways because we didn’t give up and we clung on to the God who gave us purpose and helps us reach that purpose.

One thought on “The Journey Begins

  1. Yeah 🙂 “..how God did it all through weak little me..” and we can only see this if we remember. This always brings me back to the need to journal goals, prayers, answers, accomplishments, blessing, trials, challenges, and so on. So that when we are doubting or have forgotten, we can go back and see how great our God really is, and we can see the blood of His son making us new.
