New Beginnings!

Wow what a year that has passed! Being a couple weeks into the new year I have already learned so much! God has really been working, not only on me but the people around me, which I have been honored with the opportunity to be a part of. I do believe the biggest thing I learned is to not be so closed off to people and what is going on in other peoples lives. I tend to pass by and not really see that something inside of them is truly stirring. I may notice but instead of praying or just simply asking "Is everything okay?" I keep on going.
Going into another semester I know God has something HUGE planned and I cannot wait to see what is in store! One of the things that God has really pressed on my heart though is the passage Philippians 1:9-11 which says, "And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ,to the glory and praise of God". In little ways He has brought it to my attention, either it be in my devotion or from a friend just simply quoting it or asking me to read it, even going to my old youth groups website. I have truly made that a prayer for everyday!
So here I go into another semester and another year but more importantly to another chance to live each day completely and fully for God!
