2017 and God

You may not be like me but nearly every year for as long as I can remember I have always taken these last few days of a year to reflect and get ready for the new one. 

It’s not about resolutions, I can’t keep them and in reality they are (to me), a little boring. 

Here’s my focus ~ that my walk with God would be better. That I would start strong the next 365 days, digging in the Word, praying every day and living with greater intent in regard to the person I say is the most important to me. 

So let me ask some of the questions I ask myself to get me thinking about relationship with God. 

What am I most excited about for 2017 with God?

Where do I need to grow bigger with God in 2017?

What will I make my non-negotiables in 2017 when it comes to my relationship with God?

What I am believing God for in 2017?

Why not answer them and share your thoughts as a comment below. Thanks.

  1. Psalm 46 v10
    Be still and know that I am God
    To be still says my Bible reading is not to worry fret make demands take control assume the worst
    But to make a sustained effort to focus on God through prayer and belief.
    That is my aim for 2017 as the word sustained leaps out. I do focus on God many times but sustained speaks of consistency. I have to find fresh ways to approach God in prayer and devotions not always relying on someone else to lead me.
    Keep the thoughts coming in in 2917. So helpful.

    • Thanks for the thought and encouragement Pauline. I think sustaining our walk with God is a challenge for all of us and one that I am working on every day, with the help of the Holy Spirit. Believing 2017 will be a year of fresh revelation in God for you.
