Here is the latest pages of my 2018 BuJo. I absolutely love them.
Holy Spirit has really laid it on my heart that not only is it important to be healthy spiritually (reading, studying, mediating on the word, prayer, fasting) but also to be healthy physically. Our bodies are temporary vessel’s however they are a temple. I am not trying to lost weight, but be healthy. I may lose weight in the process but that isn’t my goal. Hence the tape over the weigh in of 2018! This means less sweets, more water, and a whole lot more exercise.
As I read the book about Spiritual Disciplines I have been reminded how important it is to meditate on The Word Of God. I sometimes read scripture at a pace that is just allowing me to read, not study and meditate.
What tools do you use to help your spiritual and physical health?
Messy vs not so messy. I love my bujo because I make it my own and can put little reminder for exactly what I need that coming week! We are trying to spend less, save & give more! I also need to remember to take it easy on myself. Progress is progress☝️ #BuJo #BulletJournal #MessyBujo #Calligraphy #PerfectlyUnperfect #Faith #ChrisitanBlog
I have had a goal for the past 4 years and it was to get to know God and put him first. I can finally say, in 2017 it has been accomplished. This past year, as it comes to end has shown me who I am in Christ. Nothing is more powerful than knowing your identity in Christ. When I faced trials and tribulations, the more I knew my Papa and declared his promises, the better off I was! I knew throughout 2017:
“We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.”-Romans 8:28 CSB
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable — if there is any moral excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy — dwell on these things. Do what you have learned and received and heard from me, and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.-Philippians 4:6-9 CSB
Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, if God loved us in this way, we also must love one another. No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God remains in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and we testify that the Father has sent his Son as the world’s Savior. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God — God remains in him and he in God. And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.-1 John 4:10-16 CSB
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and yet hates his brother or sister, he is a liar. For the person who does not love his brother or sister whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And we have this command from him: The one who loves God must also love his brother and sister.-1 John 4:19-21 CSB
Those are just some of God’s promises that got me through. God has inspired me to write not only this blog, but I am working on a book. He gave me my amazing husband this past year and I got a beautiful puppy this CHRISTmas! God has provided abundantly in my finances and has healed me of Bipolar Disorder. (You can check out the links below to see more on mental health) I’ve saw people find God that I prayed for and other miracles happen before my eyes! The list goes on of how God has blessed me this year.
As this year approaches I want to encourage you to keep a prayer journal to show what Abba has brought you to and through. I also remind you that “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”-Romans 8:37-39 CSB
If we put God at the throne of our hearts where he belongsyou will watch 2018 be one of the best years of your life! I’m telling you this from my experience!
Did you reach any of your goals in 2017? What are some in 2018?
Thankyou to all those who have supported me through this blog. May God bless you abundantly in this next year to come. My hope is for you to grow into a deeper & more intimate relationship this year with Abba. That you always keep him on the throne of your heart. I pray he gives you a boldness to show people who may not know him, what pure love really looks like by showing Christ’s example. I pray you hold onto your lifelines of your relationship with God: his word, prayer, and a church family who loves God, who pushes you to know him more!
I’m not sure how many people that are following, bullet journal or just journal in general. Journaling is a passion of mine, along with writing! My journal is a little messy, but it’s how I like it🤷♀️I wrote down a couple goals on the left and in the right in the Key is the word I’m hoping to keep close to my heart all year😁 Steadfast💕 I wrote a couple verses along the side to help me on days where it may be difficult😌 Anyone else have a word to focus on this year?
