I figured I would start the new year with my devotional and my music. It is helping me focus on what’s ahead of me this year and what is going to require a lot of my attention and dedication. Cleansing my soul, healing my heart, strengthen my emotions, regaining all my courage, and getting my spiritual dedication back on track. Feeding not only body but soul as well. My body, mind and heart are important to be the strongest they can be. Taking time for the “Daily Refreshing” of my goals, and personal battles to overcome are critical. To be comfortable in my own skin, and with the words that come out of my mouth is a struggle. I know that I will not be able to get through this year alone…God will have to be present with each step…decision…effort…change…career…conversation…laugh…and basically each day I am allowed to have. My eyes are focused on the present day and the upcoming weekend. I can not go farther than that at the moment. Why complicate, stress or worry about the next day. I have today, I will prepare for the future but not worry. I will light the candle that was blown out inside my heart and mind, letting the light glow and shine through me. It will lighten all the dark spaces, not allowing anything including hurt worry and pain to hide from its radiant honest light.
Confidently I stand, inside my chest, raising my hands to the sky and shouting praises to the Lord. Thank you!
I will let myself smile, laugh, and be happy.
