As I have been reflecting on the past year, I know that somethings did not happen that I wanted to happen. I have gotten closer to God in my daily walk, but I had thought that there would be a more noticeable change. However, I know that I must look deeper within myself because for me to work to become more Christ like I must live like He did. That is a harder thing to do. From what I see, I am not doing that and I need to be doing that. There are too many distractions in my life that I need to clean up and get a handle on. This past fall semester, I failed a class that I needed to graduate with and now I have put myself in a predicament to where I now have to take an extra class just to finish my degree. Unfortunately, I have no one else to blame, but myself. I have allowed these distractions to become apart of my life and that is not good.
Well a new year has started and now is the time to work to make a better year and strive to improve myself as a better friend, Christian, sister, and person to those around me and those that I come in contact with. So my prayer this year is to be better than the last year and a more Christ like follower. I know it will not be easy, but I know that with Christ on my side I cannot fail. He is my older brother, Savior, Lord, and friend. So by relying on Him for everything I know that I can and will become a better person.
What about you? Have you evaluated your life over this past year? Do you need to make some changes to become the person that you want to be? I know that for me these questions I will be pondering over this year. Care to join me?
