Christian Devotional – January 2, 2017

Welcome to 2017!! Today I wanted to take a couple of minutes and talk about this coming year. This past year has been a difficult one for me for a number of reasons. I have seen God do great and amazing things, but not all of those have been easy or pleasant to go through. I am more convinced than ever that God has great plans and that He is going to receive the glory for anything and everything that He does, but I have struggled with knowing exactly what I am supposed to be doing through all this. I’ve seen a lot of internal change in this last year and there is a big part of me that is really excited to leave 2016 in the past and move on to 2017!

With all that being said, I am really wanting to see some exciting changes in 2017. I have started by looking at how I want to focus myself this year. Over the past several weeks, I have been looking and thinking a lot about the idea of purpose. I have struggled to see my purpose in a great many areas of my life this past year. I know that my overall purpose is to bring glory to God. I have just struggled with how I am supposed to be doing that on a day by day basis.

Because of this focus on “purpose,” I have made a decision to redirect my devotionals for a sort basis. Instead of going chapter by chapter through a book of the Bible, I am going to focus on the subject of purpose for the next several devotions. I know that God speaks to each of us and has great and amazing purpose for each one of us and I pray that you will take this journey with me as we dive into “purpose” in this New Year!

Thanks to each of you for all your support and for continuing with me as we look at the topic of purpose!
