This blog has been an epic failure lately. I often find myself creating posts in my head but then fail to ever sit down and type them. 2012 was a hectic year.
I took some time this morning to journal and think about my goals for 2013. While I won’t write them down here (there are 6), I will say that blogging fairly regularly is one of them. To my 3 readers, you are welcome.
The past couple years I have also picked a one word theme. This year’s theme? Gratitude.
This year I will focus on God’s gifts. Inspired by Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts, I will begin keeping my own list of all I’ve been given. I will post some here.
For now, I want to highlight all the “gifts” mentioned in the first seven verses of Isaiah 43.
He created me.
He formed me.
He redeemed me.
He has called me by name.
I am His.
He is with me. He will be with me.
He will not let me be consumed.
He is my Lord and my God.
The Holy One – my SAVIOR.
I am precious in His eyes.
He LOVES me.
There is nothing He wouldn’t give to deliver me.
He is with me — I have nothing to fear.
He has fought for me, is fighting for me, will fight for me all the days of my life.
Gratitude. I think we’re off to a good start.
