New Year, I am thinking of calling it "ACTION"

So, I have decided that I am a once a month writer...suits me really, I don't like sharing personal struggles everyday, it gets wearisome.

Not that everyday is a struggle, I guess I could write about blessings, ordinary things like smiles, leaves, snow, ice and such...actually I should write about those things...maybe a goal for the New Year :)

ACTION is a very powerful word. Directors of plays and movies use the word to command actors to motion. It is a verb that describe the doing, the doing of anything really. So, for this next year, I am going to do my best to start doing and stop complaining, stop waiting, and stop wanting change and make it happen with God's help!

Simple things really, not huge money making ideals, just ordinary life changes and using Daniel as my example...a set prayer time, better eating habits, prayers of thanksgiving instead of want or sorrow, watching for the Second Coming and avoiding modern day Babel. So much of this I have studied, yet have failed to do on a daily basis for long periods of time. My resolution is to make these practices into habits for a lifetime and to leave them as a legacy for my children and grandchildren (God willing).

ACTION is also being quite and letting God move as HE wills. Allowing myself to be molded and shaped in HIS hands. Following in HIS footsteps and live my HIS example. I heard it once that we can spend a lifetime praying, but until we step out into faith, we may never see the prayers takes ACTION, moving with God's timing...HE always answers with an ACTION, either to GO or to STAY, both ACTIONS, both causing us to do something, calling on strength that is not our own.

So, let's put the past behind us. Claim the gift that has been given, salvation, redemption, and forgiveness. Stand at the starting line and move into the life that God so wants us to claim, a life of freedom and fullness in HIM. A call to ACTION!

Blessing upon you and yours this NEW YEAR and won't you join me in the race of living!

  1. I've fallen behind in my blog reading...just now getting caught up. I can see I've missed some incredible photos as well as some heartfelt words from you. Sounds like you are not missing a thing at all from MnMs as we discuss being shaped and refined by God into shining pretty much have said the same things :)

    I do hope your steps are feeling lighter. His mercies truly our new in the morning. God bless, Jean!

    Love, Karyn

    PS - Your blog would only let me leave a comment if I linked to another blog. I tried to link it to my wordpress blog but it wouldn't take, so I used my old blogspot blog. So don't go clicking on it and wondering why I haven't updated it in over a year. I mean, if you could see my wordpress blog, I'm only a month behind :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a word of encouragement...I truly consider it a blessing that you have spent the time reading my scribbles in the sand.
