What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Post by Mia Sherwood on Sat Jan 01, 2011 9:47 am

I want to be more structured. I want to have more structure to my everyday life.

The two most important areas are:

* I want to wake up and study/spend time with God FIRST!

* I want to make a list of things that need to be done and do them

If I can do these two things with excellence I will be happy.

I want to improve in two areas so that I can more effectively serve the Lord both in the short and long term:

- I want to have regular God time in the mornings which will mean I have to wake up earlier so there's a certain amount of sacrifice that I'm going to have to 'woman' up and accept as I treasure my sleep time...this will be my version of a sacrifice of praise...

- I really need to start respecting my body as the Holy temple that it is.

This is more than about me needing to lose # pounds - it's more about eating whole foods, reducing the processed/junk foods in my diet and becoming more active so that I'm more energized, and overall more healthy so that I can live a long life (if the Lord is in agreement) to enjoy my current and future family and continue be in service to Him. He's told me that I'll live to be at least twice my current age so I'd like to be a strong and healthy 50 something... wink

I'm going out AGAIN to deeper waters and casting my nets so I can gather all that God has for me in this NEW DECADE! I tried before, but it didn't work. I'm going back again and say what Peter said in Luke 5..."on the ground of Your word, I will lower the nets [again]."



Do not fight FOR victory, but fight FROM THE PLACE of victory. Jesus has ALREADY won the battle!

This is actually exactly what I was thinking when I made my resolution! Thanks for using all the words necessary to say what I too meant!

lol!

I will seek Jesus more (it's like hunting a wild animal. To Jesus: I'm gonna get you Jesus. You can't run from me! No more hide-and-seek. As soon as I get You, I'll be happy, victorious, and the best dag-nabbit hunter of all time!!!).

Finally finish my script!

Lose a huge amt. or weight!

Let's form a support group! We all have the same resolutions! lol!

I also decided I want to eat as little as possiblel in the processed foods department. Unfortunately, owning a fast food restaurant makes that a challenge so this year I'm adding healthy options to my menu.

Maybe, it should be full of testimonies of people who searched for God and found him and also stories of born-again christians who "hunted" for Jesus and got the "mother-load" (blessings, joy, emotions, revelations, or even God-encounters). and how-to on how to search for God. and an explanation on how to meditate on scripture and plead the blood of Jesus(of course if they need to get trash and demons out of their system). Encouraging teachings can help too.

You might be on to something.

I guess the first way to keep moving forward is to check into a forum especially designed for this purpose. Hearing how others are succeeding is surely a good encouragement and if we are making it a priority to come together for this purpose we are sure to become inspired by the good news of others~!

Good ideas, J!

Thanks, Mia! What should we name the forum? "To Find God" "If you Hunger and Thirst for God" "Hungry for God?"

Yea here's another idea! How about a monthly prayer thing-mahujig! Each month we pledge to pray to God everyday without ceasing. Now I know prayer can be request, but how about prayer that focuses on actually spending time with God instead of petitions (but would still ask for protection, guidence whatever we want or need but on the side). And we could fast, but we would fast from thing we indulge in (like i-pods) and replace that time with praying to God!!!!!

I like it. I can't fast from my iPod. Its got 200 Joyce Meyer Podcasts on it and is 100% God stuff. IT actually helps me focus on God.

BUT I like the principle idea! Fast from distractions!

Right now I'm going to take a hot bath by candlelight, with a bar of Lindt chocolate (only eating a piece or two), a remaining glass of champagne from my New Year's bottle, and Joyce Meyer on my laptop.

Time getting into God's presence doesn't have to be painful.

No, it doesn't. But does it have to be that pleasurable? Personally I would just be in my room, shut the lights, put a lamp on, get under the covers on my bed, speak to Jesus and imagine he's laying down on the other side (I have a queen sized bed!).

You know J, anytime I've been in God's presence it's been the most pleasureable experience in my life..... and honestly, I can't think of a better way to spend the evening with God (actually worshipping in chur ch is my favorite) and He is my Husband after all and what better way to spend an evening with your husband? Things like this, actually are out of the box ways of spending time with God that make it great.

Did you know what the tithe was supposed to be spent on? Whatever your heart desired. Strong drink, food, wine, etc... whatever your heart desired to come and celebrate in God's presence. We need more of that and less of the kneeling on rice philosphies.
