Happy New Year my friends!

I pray that you have a fresh perspective on the upcoming 363 days until 2018 comes around. Last week I spent some time reflecting on the year, reading other’s posts and talking with friends about theirs. Emotions are mixed on 2016. Some have complete despair, others happy memories. I encourage, you, my friend, to live life to the fullest not matter your circumstances in 2017.

How do we live life to the fullest, making 2017 a year to joyfully remember?

Believe

Believe Christ is our Savior.

Really believe it.

Live like we believe it.

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (Psalm 18).

Dream

Dream about what God has put on our hearts. We all have a dream. Let’s make this year the year we get off the couch and go for it.

Change

Make a change. It may be directional, emotional, physical or spiritual. Become better by changing something from negative to positive. Challenge ourselves to do something different, something that makes us grow.

Love

Show others the love that God has shown in our lives. Get rid of negative thoughts. Walk away from gossip. Give a hand to someone in need. Step outside of our comfort zone into the lives of others.

Be Excited

Let the joy of the Lord be our excitement. Smile. Laugh. Be ready for what is next in our lives. God has a plan. It is to prosper us and give us hope and a future. Cling to that

Be Brave

Take a step in faith to make this year the best year yet. Live life without fear. Keep moving forward one step at a time trusting that God is with you.

 

Living our lives to the fullest takes us to new places where we can glorify God. Hold your head up high. Lift your shoulders. Stand strong. Walk free. Be blessed. 2017 is here now let’s take ahold and step out in faith that God has our back.

 

Let me know what you are planning for 2017. How are you going to live your life to the fullest? Do you have plans?
