What’s on my chalkboard

cb1

I am so grateful for the opportunity to see another year.  It only takes a few seconds of watching or listening to current news to find out how truly fortunate we are to still be alive.  I’m also grateful for the opportunity a new year brings.  A fresh start.  So many things happened in 2012 around the world and even in my own heart.  So happy for the progress I’ve made.  Challenged by, and sometimes ashamed of, the areas that are still under major construction.  Yet, my hope remains.  Not in my ability to make myself over, but in God’s ability to transform as I give it all to Him.  The words on my chalkboard seemed to pierce my heart as I heard them being sung earlier.  “Let my manner of living be a witness that You’re alive.”  The “You’re” is Jesus.  “My manner” is what I say, think, do and everything in between.

He is indeed alive and well!

And I want my life to reflect that.

Be wise, my child, and make my heart glad.  Then I will be able to answer my critics. (Proverbs 27:11 NLT)

May our good conduct be the best answer to all who find fault with the gospel.

  1. We DO have many things to be grateful for, don’t we! Last year, I focused on celebrating all the things that are right in my life. This year, I’m trying to focus on and be grateful for all the abundance I already have in so many areas of my life. Great post! Thanks for the reminder!
    Happy Sunday!

    1. I hear you Beth. Gratitude is so powerful! I am so glad you decided to share your talent with the world. That must have been one of those “right” things you were thinking about last year. Lol. There is no telling where this year will take you. Glad our paths crossed!

Go ahead and leave a drop!
