I have seriously neglected this blog. I am sitting here at work listening to Ephesians (the entire book of Ephesians word for word set to music!) and really desire to keep this blog updated. I have caught up and am on track in my daily bible reading using Professor Horner's Bible reading plan. This will be the year, God willing, that I read through the Bible! I hope to write a few posts each week about what I am learning.
Several weeks ago, I was challenged to envision who I wanted to be and who God wanted me to be and write out action steps- how to get there. All of us have room to grow and I definitely have my areas of needed growth. Financially- to pay off all short term debt. Physically- I still have 30 pounds left to lose to be at a "healthy weight" (based on BMI). Spiritually, to know God more, walk with Him daily, and grow in trust and purity.
With 26 weeks left in 2012, I plan on tackling all three of these areas. Financially- to pay off $4000 in debt by December 31. Physically, I want to be at a target weight of 200 by the end of the year. Spiritually, I am trying to be more disciplined in prayer (time and place). Also, by God's help, I will read Scripture daily and memorize Scripture (Romans 8 by end of July and Ephesians by end of year). There are a million other things that I won't be blogging about but I just pray that God will give me a vision of who he wants me to be and give me the willpower to move in that direction daily.
