I’m not normally the kind of person who feels the need to make resolutions at this time of the year, but for some reason this year the temptation to “make myself a better person” was nipping at me. I left me feeling defeated and worthless.
I recognized it, and God’s been showing me some things through it.
Last night I sat down to try to put into words some of those things that God is teaching me. Maybe it’s too soon. I wrote a decent amount, but I think it might just have been for my own growth. So much of what I write is, it seems. But I’d prayed, “God, if you want me to get this out, I need you to give me the words.”
God is fun.
He gave me the words – and I didn’t even have to write them myself!
I don’t know how I ended up at Bronwyn Lea’s blog, but I did. And as I read this post about new year’s resolutions, I had to chuckle (after getting over my raging jealousy… someone had expressed my thoughts beautifully before I could even form them coherently. AGAIN!) But there it was – an answer to my prayer. God had given me the words all right, written up all pretty by someone else.
It’s good stuff, so go read it.
I’ll get some new posts up in the not-too-distant future. Until then, happy 2016.
