This new year, like many, I am sitting reflecting what things I want to see more of in my life, and less of. Every January we do a fast, as a family, but this year, I really felt the Lord impress my heart not to just fast, but to feast. Instead of focusing on what I am going without, I want to focus on what I am filling myself with instead.
They say it takes 28 days to make or break a habit, well what if this fast starts a habit? A habit for health, devotion, and my heart life? Hmmm, I think we are on to something here...
In 2012 I am going to STOP and smell the roses.
In 2012 I am going to LOOK at people in the eyes with compassion.
In 2012 I am going to LAUGH more, a lot more.
In 2012 I am going to ASK God for Divine Encounters and Surprises, and make room for them!
Over the next 28 days, while I am fasting, I am going to be going through this devotional along with a few friends, called 90 Days with the One and Only. In addition to that, I am meditating on the Sermon on the Mount 8 Beatitudes each day.
What are some additions to your life you are going after? Do you have your Bible Study Action Plan laid out for 2012? Or for January? I just want to encourage you to have a plan. Even if you don't keep it 100% of the time, just laying it out and having a goal makes such a huge difference!
Happy New Year!
