I am so grateful for the work God has done in 2011. It was a wonderful year in many ways, and a very rough year in many ways. We had quite a few hard losses and many trials, but it was such a growing process, and has really helped to put a new perspective on some things for me.
One of the things God really put on my heart at the beginning of last year was how much I need, NEED to be in the Word every day. I made that a goal last year, and it was amazing how much it grew me. Quickly.
My main goal for this year is to become more of a prayer warrior. Through Jesus Christ, we can come boldly to the throne of grace, and the only reason we don't take advantage of this is because of a lack of faith. We just finished a wonderful study of Hebrews with our church, and one of the main things that I was challenged on was how important faith is. Faith is EVERYTHING. Literally.
We, as a family, don't tend to do New Year's resolutions, but it is nice to be able to kind of take a moment to take an "inventory" of the last year and gear up for the next year.
So....I hope you all had a wonderful 2011 and have a blessed 2012!!!
