January 1st ‘VS’ The First Monday
*New Year. New Life. New Me. New Perspective. New Attitude. New Priorities*
(This year will be different on so many levels)
Normal people do all their new year resolutions on the first day of the year, well this is just further conformation that I am not "normal". As I sit in this office I realize that there are ALOT of things in my life that need to change if I expect to succeed at all in this season of my life. So I have decided that my resolutions will not be "resolutions" but commitments to not only myself and those around me but also to God. This year will be a year of S.H.I.F.T-ing for me.
*S.erve H.eal I.nspire F.ight T.each*
*Serving- I will serve those around me with diligence and respect and will complete what I commit to with out over exerting and spreading myself to thin.
*Healing- I will let go and surrender all of me to the divine Healer in order to get over my "issues" and also to release others healing which will come through mine.
*Inspiring- I will learn to look in high places for inspiration for not only myself but for those who need it, I will inspire my family, my friends, my community, my city, and in due time my country and the world with help from none other than my Lord and Savior.
*Fighting- I will take my stance as a Kingdom Warrior and will from now on fight for not only my harvest but also my family; both physical and spiritual. My promise, my purpose, and I will fight to defend the Kingdom of God.
*Teaching- I will take all that I have learned and in turn share with the world both near and far because I know that knowledge is power and if we all are to be Warriors of the Kingdom then we all need proper knowledge and training. At the same time, I will learn more from those who I will come in contact with.
With this said, I make these commitments today and I've written them here not only for accountability but also to make an impact and a point, I love my life but I also know that I love god a lot more and whatever I have to do for him to be able to use me, this is my year to do it regardless of the cost to me.
*Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8; " To everything there is a season a time of purpose. A time to be born, and a time to die A time to plant and a time to pluck. A time to kill and a time to heal A time to break down and a time to build up. A time to weep and a time to laugh a time to mourn and a time to dance. A time to cast a way stones and a time to gather stones a time to embrace and a time to refrain, A time to gain and a time to lose a time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to sew a time to keep silence and a time to speak. A Time To Love And A Time To Hate A Time For War And A Time For Peace."
This is my time, my time to step up and step out and become all that God had destined for me to be. ~Alexis
