HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! #Screams&Confetti

Maybe you’re not as excited as I am but you should be. Why? Because grace has found you. Congratulations – you’ve made it to see another 365 days! That’s something to be excited about.

Perhaps in 2016 you didn’t lose the weight, finish what you started, or maybe you never even set out towards your goals at all. Well, it’s a brand new day and thank God – you can begin again.

What better way to begin this new year than by being intentional about seeking the Lord?

I so believe that if you, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, He will establish your plans” (Proverbs 16:3). God desires for you to do all the things you set your heart to do. However, He desires to be the One who establishes your plans and leads your life. This is great news! Because quite frankly, I need the help.

I don’t know about you, but whenever I try to run my own life I end up with a mess that I need the grace of God to come and clean up. So, why not begin with Him already in it?

It is my heart that as women who love God we keep the main thing the main thing. I believe one great way to do that is by beginning the year with a devotional.

A devotional is a tool used to help you intentionally set apart time to worship and honor the Lord through the reading of His word and prayer. It requires you to make a conscious decision to sit down amidst the pressures of life to be with Jesus. It’s a commitment.

I know life is happening every single day and at times it can be difficult to carve out much needed time with the Lord. But, you’re committing to something everyday. Whether it’s your job, children, spouse, friends, school, tv shows, social media, etc. Remember, whoever or whatever you’re devoted to will have your heart. And God so desires every piece of you.

In order to establish and strengthen your commitment to the Lord, I thought it would be great to begin a devotional together. No, not just any devotional. This is a super supportive 21-day online devotional including engagement and encouragement from your sisters. You’ll also receive inspiration and motivation from yours truly through prayers, emails, thought provoking questions, videos and so much more!

I am ecstatic about us starting this new year together seeking the face of the Lord. I’m believing this will both challenge you and deeply change your life for the better.

The best part is you’ll be able to do this from the comfort of your own couch, bed, or prayer room, and you’ll only need a few things to help make your time with the Lord most successful:
1. At least 30 minutes of quiet time
2. The YouVersion Bible app (downloadable to any smart phone or device)
3. A journal and writing utensil (*Insert sparkly, purple pen like mine here!*)

I want to connect with you on this journey!

Join our kick-off at 5pm on January 8th via Facebook Live here.
