Revolution of the 2010 New Year's Resolutions

So here I sit discouraged and frustrated as I cross out the resolutions that were inked on January 1st of this year, and think...well failed, failed, failed. I sometimes wonder why I do these things, why do I set myself for these things only to look back and see that I missed the mark. But honestly, in scanning past goals, I am not always crossing them out, I am also starring and underlining and circling! I do know why I do this to myself, because I set a high standard for myself, knowing that if I don't I will just accept anything, I will just make an excuse and allow myself to sinfully compare myself to the next person. I allow myself to take the easy way out. I remember in a class at Bethel, Jimmy Miller recited a Proverb that said, "Where there is no vision, they will walk unrestrained." I don't want to just wandered, because I know I was created for a purpose and I know that with God's help I will have the Strength for the Climb.

So here I am...about to write down my goals until my 30th birthday...

About Me

My photo
The name of this blog was inspired by Kristin Armstrong's devotional book, Strength for the Climb. I am a midwest girl married to a handsome, hardworking, God-fearing man and the mother of two boys. My eldest son, a social butterfly that has enough energy and excitement to make anyone tired and a personality that will make you giggle with laughter. My youngest son, can cuddle like no other, and his eyes will speak right to your soul. Both of my sons have taught me more about God's grace and goodness. We are blessed to have an extra chromosome in our family as our sweet Jack was diagnosed at birth with Down syndrome. With that, I am reminded daily to trust and rely on God's perfect plan on this journey called life. I am a child of God and grateful to my Heavenly Father for His continued blessings, guidance, wisdom, and most importantly for saving my soul.
