One year ago

To me it seems absolutely insane a year could have passed so fast. Honestly 2008 was not great by any means. But I believe it was a very important year none the less.

One year ago I prayed with everything in me for God to finally send a guy into my life to knock me off my feet. Haha God sure has a sense of humor. He sent a guy who knocked me to my knees and turned me towards Him. Literally, one month with one guy who didn't believe in Christ's authority and sovereign power changed me radically. That sent me on a path following my Saviour with everything in me. I've grown so much last year. I don't plan to stop.

One year ago, I made a list of resolutions. Thankfully I didn't keep them all. Funniest one? Finally "make out with a dude." (And why? Just because everyone gave me a hard time because I have never kissed a guy in my life) But I REALLY don't want to anymore. I actually want to save myself completely for one person. Since Christ calls us to a life of purity, I always had a hard time grasping that. I know it's crazy, and possibly lame, but who CARES. It means I don't want to date anyone, nor do I want to play the kissing game. One day, one guy will appreciate that I didn't give my body away freely, even in just a simple kiss. And if no such guy exists, then I shall remain single forever, with Christ's love to fully satisfy me. However I do believe in forgiveness, and that's another topic for another post. The point is, from one year ago I have changed my thinking.

One year ago, I was not the person I am now.

Two roads diverged in a single wood, And I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

I pray fervently I would not lose sight of what is important to me in this life. I hope, though I shall slip, that I would never tire of getting back up and traversing on the course Christ has set for me.

Ephesians 4:1 "As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received."

Psalm 139:25 "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way of the everlasting."

I pray this year I would live differently and that from here on out I would continue to change into the person Christ calls me to be.

On a side note today begins the 31 day challenge. I have a bad habit of forgetting to read my Bible some days. I'll forget one day but do it the next. Not good. So one of my goals is to FOR SURE read it every day these 31 days. I want to make a healthy habit of it. Number two is to work out. Can I do it? I will tell you at the end of the 31 days if I did.
