I Will Make 2014 Count By...
I will make 2014 count by...
By living for the moment vs. always trying to look ahead. This moment was given to us by Him to appreciate and embrace...take advantage of the opportunity.
By giving thanks in all circumstances. Being truly thankful is such a rich emotion. I have been guilty of "giving thanks," but not being deeply thankful. And when times are good? You bet, let the gratitude spilleth over! But yet giving thanks when times are rough, edgy, and raw? That's when it's needed the most; that's when it pleases Him the most.
By doing, being, and seeing more of the good in life. In other words, having a positive attitude towards all that He has given me...even when it's hard.
By giving more. Giving even when I have so little myself. Giving of my time, money, and myself to others in need. Give to others to make their day a little more special, a little brighter, a little lighter of their burdens.
I will make 2014 count by doing all of the above. Because I know that if I do, not only will others benefit from it, but so will I. And to make myself benefit from doing, giving, and living? What a priceless year!
