I started reading a book several days ago called Not I But Christ by Corrie ten Boom. In the first few pages were these words. I read them aloud to someone with me and I could hardly get them out. It's like someone took the words out of my heart and put them on paper. I guess you could say it was exactly what I needed at that moment. From that point on it changed my whole countenance and day for the better. I have looked back at these words so many times since I first read them. Maybe it was just meant for me, but I keep thinking about them, so maybe someone else needs this too.
Pastor Broyhill's message tonight was on Psalm 1. After much thinking on this verse, I decided to use the Quotes Creator app to make this picture and keep as my reminder for this year. During the morning message, something Pastor mentioned, that just struck a chord in me is that typically our New Year's resolutions are self-focused, but a better question is, "What does God want me to focus on this year?" It's a great question to ask ourselves.
I also picked up a Bible Reading Schedule at church today for myself and my boys. I would like to use this schedule this year for my own personal reading and with my boys to read and discuss during our days together. I am going to use this schedule over the next year, to help us read through the Bible together, as a family.
