this year

This year, like the last few, the months of January thru about oh- June, I have a renewed spirit for the Lord.  Always one of my New years resolutions is to get closer with the Lord. And with the cold weather keeping my homebound more often, it is easier to get caught up in God’s word.

But it always seems like as soon as summer hits… I start to lose “steam” for the Lord. I still go to church as much as possible. I still pray everyday… but theres something different.  Something that isn’t as “gung ho” as it was back in January.  

These last few months just looking thru my blog posts you can see such a difference in my post… going from “life issues” to God focused posts. This year is no different starting out than the last few years.  But this year, I am going to make this the year that I stay about God all year long.

I know this will be hard especially as most of my close friends have a different mindset than I do. They are all about going out, partying, having a good time… Not that there is anything wrong with having a good time. I am all about a good time.. but I need to make sure that good time, doesn’t interfere with my walk with God.

Last summer, I went a little crazy. I just kinda went with the flow.. Drank way too much, put my goals above the Lords. Every weekend, I was going out and having fun.  I still tried to go to church when I felt well enough to go on Sunday… but by the end of the year… I was there less and less.  I always found some excuse for Not Going. 

I don’t want this summer to be like that. I want this summer to be focused on My Lord, My family and then my friends.  There isn’t going to be the going out drinking, late night parties at my house, wild and crazy nights…  I will still have fun this summer but will do it respectfully… Respectfully for My Lord, My self and My kids.

  1. What a wonderful goal to have! For the past several years, I've made a goal in January to read the Bible in a year, but that's never happened. I don't think I've even made it to March before I've stopped reading... :( I think my biggest problem (besides just being lazy) was that I'd get behind and just give up. But the great thing about God is that He's always ready to wipe our slates clean so that we can start again! All we have to do is ask...


Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
