I can't believe 2008 is gone. Where does the time go? Life is passing by at an alarming rate.
God was so faithful in 2008. My Life Focus was boundaries. He did not fail me for one second. I can't believe the doormat I have been my whole life. For some strange reason I thought I had to be. Now that I understand what it means to have boundaries I realize how neglectful I have been my whole life. When I say neglectful, I mean to myself. God clearly showed me being a Christian does not equal doormat. Jesus was never a doormat. He stood up for what was right.
I was really amazed how much easier it to have good boundaries when you seek God in all you do. I also was amazed by the words He put in my mouth to stand up for myself. There were times when something came out of my mouth and I had to ask myself, was that me? My family did the same thing. I was so proud of myself, but more importantly I am glad I am beginning to live the life God intended.
My 2009 Life Focus is treating my body as God's Temple. I feel like it is a mountain of a goal, but I KNOW my Awesome God will be faithful. I want to be everything He wants me to be and I can't do that when I am not being healthy.
I hope and pray God will give you a Life Focus for this year. The past several years have been so powerful when I seek Him for chaining my life.
