And so a new year begins….

Posted on: January 7, 2009

Ahh, I’m so excited about blogging this year now that I’ve changed what it means to me. I’ve been with my great friend and mentor Diane this morning. The peace I feel when I leave her house is a wonderful thing. My spirit is growing as we in our study return to the essentials, the building blocks of the Christian faith. For me, this has been a major part of the process of coming up out of the depression which held me captive for sooooo many years. Rededicating my life and renewing my mind according the Word is enabling me to feel solid ground beneath my feet. It is responsible for my new priorities, new direction, goals and overwhelming HOPE for my future.

Good timing is such a delicate thing, very hard to learn and master. I’m so grateful to rely on my Father’s perfect timing!! We are incredibly blessed to be a part of a new church here in Claremore, The Well. Being able to serve the team and the community without thought of reward has become a welcome and freeing change of perspective. God’s love is sooo very real and tangible amongst this precious group of friends, that it humbles me. Not only is my Father taking me by the hand and teaching me how to live, He has given me a family, a church and a community in which to “work out my salvation” (Phillipians 2:12-13).

It thrills me to see how my transformation includes my art. A new logo design is coming together in my head and in the sketchbook. To me, my logo needs to embody not only the purpose of my business but the identity of it’s owner. This new sketch embodies it all, from His viewpoint I think.

I am blown away when I think of the blessings my Father has given me in the last 6 months. I look forward to spending 2009 using what I’ve been given to bless others, to truly minister God’s love and mercy to everyone I come in contact with.
A song that is a voice for my spirit right now,

My Desire by Jeremy Camp on his Restored album,

You want to be real
You want to be empty inside
You want to be someone laying down your pride
You want to be someone someday
Then lay it all down before the King
You want to be whole
You want to have purpose inside
You want to have virtue and purify your mind
You want to be set free today then lay it all down before the King

This is my desire
This is my return
This is my desire to be used by you

You want to be real
You want to be emptied inside
And I know my heart is to feel you near
And I know my life
It`s to do your will
It`s to do your will

All my life I have seen where you`ve taken me
Beyond all I have hoped and there`s more left unseen
There`s not much I can do to repay all you`ve done so I give my hands to use

Great post, even with many years of life experience it is always important to remember the blessing of life and the simple factors of life that can be easily taken for granted. Change can come in many forms at any time for any of us. Always important to remember that , continue to strive for the positive.

Understanding who you are is important I feel , seeking the positive. Remembering what constitutes your affirmation and planning for your life with significance is crucial, the now and for the journey to the awakening of your future that will unfold.
