Twenty - Seventeen Goals
I was really inspired by Jess Connolly when she shared her goals for the new year. Her goals had a lot of purpose and it made me excited to seek what God has for me this year. I wrote down things I felt He was placing on my heart and in no particular order, here is what I heard.
This is something I really want to learn this year. I love the way it looks and how beautiful it is. I can't wait to write verses in calligraphy and make art with that skill. My brother's girlfriend does it and I am so thankful that I can ask her any questions.
I used to be a big reader but lately haven't read a lot. I want to get back into reading more and enjoying it. Right now I am reading Wild and Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan and I so highly recommend it! It is so full of truth and such a great message. I read it the other day and was in tears because I was reminded just how good He is. Other books I want to read this year are: It's Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke, Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley, Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst and The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. If you have any good reads, please share!
LEARN HOW TO LOVE MY FAMILY WELL
I want to learn how to love my family well and be a better daughter and sister. God has blessed me so abundantly with an amazing family and I want to invest in my relationships with each of them. I want them to know just how much I care about them and that I love and am thankful for each of them.
This year I want to learn what health means to God and what He has for me. I am excited to read Made to Crave because it addresses the subject about craving God instead of food. I want to glorify God with my body and take care of my temple so I am fully equipped for what plans He has for me.
OR DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU, WHOM YOU HAVE FROM GOD? YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN, FOR YOU WERE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE. SO GLORIFY GOD WITH YOUR BODY. ~ 1 CORINTHIANS 6 : 19 - 20 ~
GROW IN MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
I want to know Him more and seek Him. I am so excited for what He has for me this year and I want to grow closer to Him and love Him more. He is so good!
I am so excited for what God has for this year. He is so good and I am so thankful for what He has done and what He is doing.

Lord, I am Yours. Thank You for sending Your Son, so I can be with You and draw others to You. Thank you so much for your beautiful Spirit. You are so good.
