After trying to sleep for hours I finally decided to just get up and blog!  Happy 3rd day of 2014!  As, I have been laying in bed my mind as been busy with a lot going through it such as new year's resolutions.  I had not planned on making any, but when you can't sleep you think and God speaks.
 So. . .here they are my three goals for 2014 with objects as well. :)

Goal #1 To Love

"We love Him [Jesus] because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19

" . . .love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12

How do I truly love others?  Grace!  That is how God has shown me love so that is how I can show love.

Objective #1 daily receive God's grace.

Objective #2 daily read God's Word so I am full of His love to share.

Goal #2 To Joy

"Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!" Psalm 32:11

"You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16:11

I miss out on so much joy just because I don't stop to recognize the moment.  Every moment is from God and thus joy can be found in it if we look. 

Objective #1 stop and recognize the moment.

Objective #2 give thanks!

Goal #3 To Rest

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  Matthew 11:28-30

The cares of the world wear me out!  And stress me out!  The Lord's cares may be tiring as well, but they will bring peace to my soul.

Objective #1 read God's Word so I know His burden.

Objective #2 drop the cares of the world just like Peter, Andrew, John and James (Matthew 4:18-22)did and follow Jesus.
