I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions, and if you remember from a previous post that I consider the day after Labor Day my “new year”, but I don’t shy away from reflecting, renewing, and re-examining where I currently am in life. Especially when I’m struggling to get back into routine from a wonderful Christmas Break, I appreciate the encouragement and inspiration to be purposeful in my living!
Which brings me to the timely manner in which my Mom Heart group is beginning our next book study by Sally Clarkson, Own Your Life. This book, as many of Sally’s books, is a form of mentorship to me. In reading the wisdom so carefully worded for moms like me, Sally has led me to hear God’s voice and put into action the convictions placed on my heart. In just the first few pages of reading, I am compelled to share the impact it has already made for me in 2015.
If you are following along with me on Instagram, you may already know that my word for 2015 is BALANCE and the reasoning behind it. So in keeping with this vision, and receiving affirmation in reading this book, I am driven to seek the Lord fervently in guiding my priorities.
I will own my life by leaving my priorities to God, trusting and following His lead to reveal the intent of my time…and then actually doing it! It will be Him who sets my time/schedule for what is intended; praying that I have the self-control to follow through.
After 4 years of reading books by Sally Clarkson and attending the Mom Heart Conferences, I can confidently encourage you to pick up Own Your Life and visit her blog at http://www.sallyclarkson.com. Be inspired to #ownyourlife and share how you will in the comments below. Let’s lift each other up in prayer as we all seek our best in 2015!!
