Happy New Year!!

2016 Best 9 for me! God is amazing! First picture is when we closed on our new home as well as selling our first home. The second picture is when Nadia realized that she wanted to ride horses. I admired her courage. The third picture is when our family took a trip to DC. The 4th picture is when I got a chance to help minister to women through performing. The 5th picture is when my Dad was able to visit the kids at their school for the first time. The 6th picture is special because we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. The 7th picture is when we took a family picture in our new home. The 8th picture is when I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to host a Mommy and Me work shop and the 9th picture is my son catching his first fish. He was so determined! What are your highlights from 2016?

I can't believe we are already saying good bye to another year!! I honestly can't keep up with how fast time is moving. This is definitely an eye opener that it is  important to let God lead you to your purpose. I use to battle with being content where I am and I have come to realize that it is okay to be where you are sometimes. I know that sounds crazy, but sometimes it's good to stay put and make sure you are doing what God has called you to do in those surroundings. I'm not saying that you have to stay put and do nothing, but it's okay to be where you are at that moment.  Contentment and complacent are two different things.  The difference between contentment and complacency is a subtle one. Being content means being happy and at peace. Being complacent means refusing to work to improve.

Social media will definitely have you questioning yourself. You start to compare and feel that you need to do more, but know that God is pleased with contentment as well. Peace cannot be purchased.  When you have peace to do whatever God has called you to do, then do it because he will lead you. God is not an author of confusion, so know that if there is peace, you have his approval. With that being said, don't give up on your dreams and if you're still breathing, there's still a chance  to walk in your purpose and remember it's okay to sit at his presence and listen for a year.  We can all achieve our goals and dreams if he is at the forefront. May everyone have a blessed and prosperous New Year!!!

 1 Timothy 6:6 ESV  Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment

Psalm 37:3-5 ESV   
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

  1. Amen! You are so right about social media can have you questioning yourself. I'm learning to be content in where God has me. Sometimes you have to pull away from social media for a while and just hear Him. Happy New Year's to you and your beautiful family :)
