Malachi 3:16 talks about a remnant of God's people writing a "scroll of remembrance" of what God had done... I believe it is because we are prone to forget. Forget the good, forget the Lord's hand and how many times he has given...
I also just did a woman's retreat for a church here in Cincinnati and the whole theme was the idea of remembering where we have come from, not only spiritually, but within our own family trees. Then taking a look at our lives currently and then projecting forward on purpose to live on purpose and to love on purpose and to repent on purpose... it got me very excited for the 2014 year...
Since I am prone to forget, I want to share with this blog what my 2014 resolutions are... because the more I write them down, the more I will not forget. I have been trying to write them down every other day, if not every day. So far, it has been such a great reminder that God is faithful and I am HIS!
1. Be open to the Lord doing something new; pursue ministry with confidence
2. Speak less, listen more, pray more
3. Live with conviction; in honesty and people pleasing
4. Find God (this is really first); Regain my first love through repentance and faith
There you have it! that last one gets me soooo excited for this next year! I want to Find God not for any reason except I truly LOVE Him!!
Okay, I actually have 3 other ones, but they are more "fleshly ones" that will impact all of me, but not needing to share here... think money, exercise, etc... :)
Okay, well have a great day Finding your First Love and I will have a great day finding mine!
