I LOVE this time of year . . . not only because we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, spend more concentrated time with family and friends and give to others in BIG ways, but also because it's an opportunity for a "DO OVER!" Regardless of what the year was like, the first of the year is always an opportunity to press the RESET button!
It's a new opportunity to adjust the way you do things, see things and implement things in your life. Every holiday season, I always feel encouraged and inspired to get more organized, do a better job with my finances, practice better parenting skills and become a better wife!
But this year, I was desperate for something different! 2015 had many peaks and valleys, but as the end of the year approaches, I am tired and exhausted! I am tired of feeling like I am pushing a huge bolder up a steep hill! I NO LONGER have the energy to do anything beyond EXACTLY what God has divinely purposed and planned me to do!
As I began seeking God for what that specifically was, I just heard the words, ORDER and SURRENDER. Okay, I wasn't jumping up and down like I won the lottery when I heard those words, because I KNOW what order and surrender means . . .
letting go and relinquishing control!
UGH! But, I WAS grateful that I did hear God's response, so didn't resist, and I started asking more questions. I cannot keep doing things the same way, and you may be in the same boat! Ready for change, needing to realign...
I am clear there is something blocking God's flow of abundance, purpose and blessing in my life and if I were to guess what that block was, I would guess it was ME! I'm in the way! So, I am making the decision to move out of God's way in 2016 and letting God be God!
Over the last 8 months or so, I felt God leading me to become more intentional in the way I practiced LOVE! LOVE involves prayer, planning and practicing to become MORE like Him. So I started slowly implementing more love starting with my birthday in July.
Then, I heard recently one of the many things on the news that makes me shake my head in disappointment and thought quietly, "people need to get a life!" and I heard within, "a LOVE life!"
As I enter 2016 with focus and intention of getting out of God's way, I am kick starting my year with 31 DAILY LOVE HABITS! These are 31 simple and quick actionable steps . . . responses to God, that you too can incorporate into your daily life. Each love habit is designed to help you experience love in every area of your life!
At the end of 31 days, my heart is that you will have an encounter with LOVE that creates room for you to experience authentic love . . .
- maybe for the first time
- without expecting something in return
- without limitation
With that being said, I would like to invite you to take this 31 day journey with me starting January 1st!
