2014 is almost over.. Crazy!
I’ve been reflecting (I know it sounds cliché this time of year but I really have ha) looking at old photos and remembering everything I did this year.
I traveled: honeymoon in Hawaii, 2nd honeymoon in Disneyland, mission trip to Barcelona, vacation from mission trip to Disneyland. (Yes, I love Disneyland)
I endured: losing my job, first year of marriage (transitions can be tough at times), first time leading a team in Spain, staying without a job and learning to be ok in the season Papa had me in.
I seen a dream come to life: this ministry and blog 👉 S.H.E (has been on the dream list since I was 18)
I had FUN: growing, learning, adjusting, adventuring, &
Sorry for giving you a run down on my year, I just wanted to get your desire stirring to think back on yours.
Certainly I went through some tough times, but I choose to remember the GOOD that came out of them. 😉
Ok now that you’re finished reflecting, lets graze the arrival of 2015..
It’s 3 days away! 😱
We see all these “new year, new me” memes and the “resolution list” posts , etc, etc.
All surrounding the common factor 👉 transformation.
That’s a great thing to desire of course but with action behind it.
Every year it comes up… And then sadly, every new year it fades.
The dreams we dream up, the list of things we want to do, the number of pounds we want to lose, the characteristic we want to start walking out..
It all sounds good right? We get it out of our mind and release it with our mouth and think.. “Yes!”
And slowly but surely MAJORITY of us lose the echo of our spoken word and ultimately motivation to see these declarations come to life.
So let’s stop SPEAKING about it.
As women we have the supernatural ability to talk anyone’s ear off. A percentage of the time we are repeating ourselves, but the huge chunk is us just having lots of things to say. (😄)
So for us it’s easy to speak such beautifully-wrapped with intention-words. But let’s be quiet for once about all that in 2015 and let’s shock the world by action.
Let’s take the plunge into the highlighted dream for this upcoming year and make time to hear the plan for it to awaken!
Let’s just get healthy without having to tell the world that we are doing so.
Let’s embrace growing. Letting go of the thought of losing ourselves and get excited about the truth in actually discovering ourselves.
Let’s cross those things off our “2015 things to do” list in documentation making the world excited to see what’s next.
Isn’t that surge of energy that provokes action brewing now?!
Heroines we are capable. We were wonderfully created. We scare the naysayers more than they intimidate us. We were born for this. We were hand chosen to live in these times. So let’s LIVE THE GREATNESS OUT OF IT!
Don’t speak. Do.
S H I N E.
Be a living declaration of what you want your 2015 to look like. 💪
Papa, I thank you for being with us in our 2014. For being faithful, for loving us through the hard times, the stretching points and the amazing ones. As this new year approaches I pray we wouldn’t be inwardly consumed with working on ourselves, but consumed with you and the plans you have for us. I pray we would gain all the transformation you laid out for us to receive in 2015. I just thank you for choosing us for such a time as this, to be a representative of your kingdom, your name, and your son. This year we will go for it. This year we will put hands and feet to our declarations and bring even more glory to you Papa. You’re so worthy of our lives. Help us remember why we get up in the morning and whisper our assignments for the day. 2015 will be the year our words become life. Thank you papa! In Jesus name, amen.
Happy early new year beautiful, it’s going to be JAW DROPPING!
