The New Year

Many times by now I have set my goals for the new year. My typical method is to pray and seek the Lord about what those goals are to be. This year I have not sensed the Lord impressing goals as much as I have some verses.

Psalms 39:4

Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting is my life.

Psalms 90:12

Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Ephesians 5:15-16

Be very careful, then, how you live-- not as unwise, but as wise,
making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.

I definitely sense the Lord asking me to make wise use of my time. So I have spent time looking for ways to make better use of family time, time with my husband, and what ways I am wasting time. I realized that I have probably spent more time on Facebook and watching TV than I should be. The funny thing is I don't really enjoy watching TV all that much and I have been finding that I miss actual conversation and interaction with people and Facebook does not provide those things. However, I do have contact with people who are dear to me through Facebook who otherwise would not be a part of my life. So I have been talking to the Lord about the matter and am limiting the time I spend on Facebook in order to maintain some of those relationships. I also want to share more about our family and things the Lord puts on my heart.

So concerning the computer I have a limited time for social websites that I have given myself everyday and I also plan to post updates here on this blog once every weekend. I have not fully learned how to use this blog and I look forward to learning as well as sharing what I feel the Lord lays on my heart every weekend. I look forward it!!

Since the final Christmas celebrations happened last weekend followed by a feverish child I did not get this posted last weekend. Therefore I will add an additional post this weekend.

Have a great 2011!!!!!


  1. Good goals, Charity! And, I look forward to reading your blog more often. I try to post on mine at least once per week as well.
