Last Year I wrote:
I want this year to be the year that...
-Money isn't an issue so I can bless those without.
-People come to... & stay in church for the purpose of living & being loved by Jesus Christ.
-Laughter becomes infectious when I am gathered in a crowd of my well knows, unknowns & random strangers.
-The Year that LOVE wins over fear, doubt, hurt, anger, envy & jealousy.
I have determined that the goals I set before me as I embrace 2012 have to involve people.
Their Reason to Live.
And they have been conquered! Yay!
-Albert and I came into 2013 NOT being overdrawn in our bank accounts because we committed to tithing and trusting God for a breakthrough. Albert is in process to becoming a casual on the waterfront and we both have kept our jobs while even receiving raises!
-Our Church, Calvary Light Christian Center, has grown and is continuing to grow. It's not just people coming BACK to church... but people who have never gone to church before in their lives who are experiencing an awesome relationship with The Lord.
-2012 brought me much joy and not many headaches when it came down to friendships. The Lord allowed friendships to be mended and He handles the ones I no longer needed. With the true friends surrounding My Husband and I, we are drama-free and cherish the growth and laughter we're constantly experiencing.
-I stumbled a few times but by the time 2013 rolled in, LOVE prevailed!
It was a year full of good, great and challenging moments that we were victorious in at the end. Looking ahead, I hold on to God's Word that says...
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
for 2013... the year ahead. Our hopes, our goals, our vision they echo to grow beyond 2012, but with the same undertones. I resolve in the next year to continue what God has started in our lives. A NEW THING! There is so much to look forward to in regards to Our Life, Our Marriage, Our Walk with The Lord... Our Year.
I feel a passion for purpose awakening inside of my heart and my spirit to continue pushing forward and grabbing people along the way. It's truly because I KNOW that where ever God Leads... We SHALL follow. Through the flourished fields and through every desert valley. As long as we follow Him.
And when the clock struck midnight to ring in the New Year, My Husband Albert and I shared our 11th New Years Kiss. It was a sweetness that was as amazing as the first. But amidst the kisses, poppers, apple cider toasts, tiaras, hats, silly string and hope for the New Year, it was the moment My Husband held my hand and we began to pray that I will cherish deeply.
We thanked God for the year we had and the year ahead. We prayed for our marriage, our love, our hopes, our desires, our future, our home, our church, our family, our friends, our jobs and for you.
Here's to 2013... a year of God's Balance, Favor, Love Passion and Blessings over you and your family. Take time to reflect and thank God... but most importantly, take the courage to press FORWARD with Him too, My Blogger Pals!
Happy New Year from Mr. And Mrs. DiazDool
