With 2010 quickly approaching much attention will be given to New Year's Resolutions. A time when we look to fix what we perceive to be wrong with ourselves.
This year a new book by John Ortberg is challenging us to look beyond our worldly goals and set our focus on becoming the person that God wants us to be.
The truth is, a life of freedom and joy is available right now. My main job is to remain connected to God. When my primary focus is being present with him, everything else has a way of falling into place. When my primary focus becomes anything else, my inner vitality suffers, and I become a lesser version of myself.
Make reading The Me I Want to Be your first step to becoming God’s best version of you. In 2010 walk through the sometimes difficult but ultimately fulfilling journey towards a uniquely created spirituality. One designed just for you … one that will enable you to experience God more fully each day.
Instead of a resolution, will you commit to focusing on a relationship with God and begin trusting your life to Him?
