My Hope for 2018

In my previous blog post, I elaborated on how I thought that 2017 was a horrible year for me…….

MOVING FORWARD! I have a lot of goals/new year’s resolutions for 2018 (Lord-Willing, I will accomplish them all)! I am even using my Life Bible verse as confirmation and encouragement of what God is pushing me to do:

~”I can do all this things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”~Philippians 4:13, KJV~

Here are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 and a Bible verse to accompany each one as a source of motivation 🙂 :

  • To get more involved with my Church Family.-~”You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”~Galatians 5:13, NIV~
  • To serve the church I attend out of selflessness (Kind of like what I was saying in the last blog post about serving everyone out of love, even those who do not like you).~”For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”~Philippians 1:21, NIV~
  • To lose weight for my health’s sake and not out of selfish purposes (I’ve literally been trying to lose weight for a while and nothing I do has worked so far. Please pray for me to be physically fit in 2018!)~”So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”~1 Corinthians 10:31, ESV~
  • For God to reveal His purpose for my life to me (I have been praying about this since the end of 2017. Maybe God is using this time to humble me to trust Him the more that He reveals His purpose for me through prayer, even if it is not right away). ~”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”~Jeremiah 29:11, NIV~
  • That God will use me to be a witness to my family. (Since I’ve been praying for my family to be saved for years, maybe God will use 2018 as the year for me to LITERALLY not just be the example, but to be the hands and feet of Jesus to them. 🙂 ~”And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”~”Romans 10:15, ESV~

While all of these New Year’s Resolutions/Goals are good to have, I encourage you to remain prayer about me as I pray for my church, church family, family, and how God is leading me next. I know this blog post is very short, but this is how much that the Lord is leading me to write today. Stay encouraged. Thanks so much everyone and God bless! 🙂
