I’ve seen lots of posts on “Five Things to Do If 2013 Wasn’t Your Year”. Truth be told, I don’t even click through. Because every year could be considered “not my year” if I chose to think that way.
Some are better than others, I will concede. 2013 was filled with joy for me. Sure we had our share of heartache, loss and disappointment, but overall there were so many beautiful things that God did in our lives. I am able to continue my education, we have our health, we have each other and most of all a God who loves us beyond measure.
So it’s led me to wonder, what things should I do since 2013 was my year? How can I repeat another good year?
One thing I know that I shouldn’t do, is make drastic changes. I don’t need to till up my life, pummeling and shoveling dirt, displacing the nutrient soil my roots are made to absorb.
Digging up dirt is just earmarking my life for erosion. Definitely not what we’re created for.
My plan for 2014 is to continue fostering my root system. Water, feed and care for my Spiritual life. Look to God and do what He is asking me to do.
Love like He is asking me to love.
He has the opposite of erosion planned for my life. He has plans to save and preserve my life, eternally.
