“My quest is to seek God more diligently – to know him better. I don’t know where this journey will lead. To change most assuredly, but what will that look like?” Journal entry dated January 4, 2015
After a year (2014) with the word RELEASE, I’m ready to be filled with more of God’s grace and presence.
“I am called by faith to do something new. My map for this journey is God’s Word. A lamp to my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119:105) God is my companion. He will never leave me nor forsake me. (Hebrew 13:5) Journal entry dated January 8, 2015
“Quest – to do the work only I can do as assigned by Father God.” Journal entry dated January 11, 2015
A feeling of urgency persists. Is it because I hit a milestone birthday a few months ago? Is it because I look at my elderly parents and see myself in twenty-five or thirty years. I must be about the work God has given me while I have my health and my memory.
This weekend I attended a writer’s retreat with my friends from Rhode Island Romance Writers. We created vision boards. Going into the workshop, I was sure my board would include some of my ‘wants’ such as a second bathroom for our home. But that isn’t what happened as I thumbed through magazines and cut out pictures and words.
The Rewards of Risk – Live Life Better – The Dream Chaser
Phrases that fit well with my one word.
More time treasure hunting. Searching God’s word. Seeking His will. Isn’t that the greatest treasure of all?
My favorite part of the board is in the center:
The words – No Room For Boring
The picture – An automobile filled with Muppets!
My quest will not be boring.
What is your word for this year? What are your expectations?
Have you signed up for my newsletter?
Wow, Nita! Appreciate your reflections! A Vision Board – – cool idea! ‘Quest’ – – doesn’t the word itself just get the adrenalin going!!! Go for it!!!
Yes! And where will this quest take me? Only God knows.
You are beautiful inside and out Anita. And an inspiration to everyone around you.
Thank you, Gerry. That’s so sweet of you to say. I enjoyed the weekend a great deal and loved how everyone’s board was a reflection of them. Mine is on the wall over my printer. Did you hang yours?
Hi lady! Oh, I love the vision board and your words for the year ahead! May your relationship with God strengthen each day. That’s a great goal for all of us! I love that the muppets are center stage in your picture, that’s right, life won’t be boring! heehee
