Day-to-day life can be stressful. And, it is really really easy to get bogged down in the same routine over and over again. I struggle everyday to keep up. I am constantly behind on editing, my blog needs a face lift, my website isn't anywhere near finished and my roots are showing a good four inches. That is my short list. I won't even mention the shape of my bedroom because it literally looks like an Old Navy exploded in there. My dining room floor looks like a Santa's workshop with wrapping paper and gifts spread out and stacked anywhere there is a spare inch of floor (disclaimer-- my dining room is tiny tiny!)
However, with all of that going on there is always a few constants in my life. One of those is my God. He is with me always. When I am weak, he is strong. When I have doubts, he is there. When I wonder if I can ever get caught up or can I make it, he assures me that I can and I will. He is my constant source of encouragement. I want my business to reflect people back to him. That is my main goal every new year. I think back to 2015 and wonder if I did that. Did I show God through my work? Was I a Christ-like example in my sessions so that they will see and know the love of God? I don't know. I try and try and hope that if at least one person saw it then my goal for 2015 was complete.
I have my moments where I know I am not in control. And, I fail. I over promise results that I can't deliver. But with grace, I get by. I am not perfect and will never claim to be, but lucky for me I have a God that loves.
2016 will come with all sorts of new trials, new goals, new accomplishments and new things. I still can't believe 2015 is almost over and more than that I can't believe it is time to start working on the 2016 goals list. But here we are and here we go. Ready or not!
