For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Word for 2014 -Values


So the new year has started. 2014 is here and life goes on. What do I wish for this year? Of course better things. What kind of better things?

One thing I have come to realize is what a dear friend once told me: "The biggest room in the whole world is called Improvement." Indeed we always have so much to learn. I know I have failed in the past and I want to do better in all areas of life this year.

The starting point though for everything is our dedication to love, know and serve our God. So for this year, yet again I need to start at the start.

The issue though is how do I keep on doing what I need to be doing? I think the issue lie in a matter of values. What we value guide our action. No matter what we say, if we act a certain way it is because that is what is important to us and it shows and reveal what our values our.

So, what should my values be?:
  • My growth in love and knowledge of the Lord
  • The nurture of my relationship with my husband and my dear children
  • The education both accademic and spiritual of my children
  • My service to my church
Now if these are my values, then they will guide my priorities. In turn my priorities will guide my daily and weekly routine. So for this year I pick the word values because as want to keep these in the forefront and as a motivation of everything I will decide and dedicate my time to.
All for His glory!
