Thinking about the new year approaching again, it seems as I get older, it comes faster and faster each time. Here we are again, on New Year’s Eve. Some are fretting about goals and resolutions.
What I want to do most, is SET MY HEART. In Colossians 3, verse 1-2, it says, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
It’s been a wonderful year, good health, trips to Washington and Alaska, boating time with my husband, new friends, a wonderful family, exciting possibilities in the writing world, and so much learning. As I learn, I realize I have so much more to learn. God is so faithful, giving me many opportunities.
Colossians 3 is a beautiful chapter…read the whole thing here….https://www.bible.com/bible/111/col.3

I’ve made many mistakes in life, and this year. Some things have been really hard. Now it’s time to move on, as a forgiven child of God. Yes, I will have some goals, like not wasting as much time on Facebook and getting my face in the BOOK more. But most of all I am planning to SET MY HEART on things above.
Bless you, my dear friends and family. Thank you for supporting me. Make it a wonderful new start for a NEW year. I love you all.
I totally agree with you. When we set our hearts on God and His Word, giving our days to Him, everything else will fall into place.
Yes that’s for sure! Thanks for reading. All praise to God!
Well said Myrna. I appreciate this post. Andrew and I are feeling a little defeated today, as a job opportunity we were excited about fell through. A reminder to set my heart on the bigger picture is just what I needed. Thank you! ❤
