As my missionary friend Catherine said, "I suppose today of all days would be the day to blog." I agree. How could I not blog about 2011, especially considering that I will spend the majority of the year here in Bolivia? How can I not make a plan and share it?
So, I will share three things.
1. Being. I want to be in God's presence this year. Every minute I rely on His provision, especially as I teach, but I so often forget or take for granted His presence.
2. Encourage. This year I am serving out of my weaknesses. It's humbling and sometimes disheartening, but I am confident that God is receiving the glory. However, during this time, I want to make sure that I am also using my gifts. I want to make 2011 a year of encouraging others.
3. Simple. I don't want to use more than I need. I want to be generous. I don't want to complicate my life just to complicate it. I want time to be quiet.
Ok, so if I could have a fourth it would be that I want to fight for joy each day, especially as I teach.
What are you seeking this year?
