Here's an update on how the "New Year's Revolution" is going. To date, I have been keeping on track with reading the Bible through in a year. I've ordered and received a book on praying through the world, one country at a time. I've started praying for Africa. There are a whole lot of countries in Africa....challenging! I've begun to give sacrificially.......getting ready to give some more today. I've been reaching out to people in tangible ways....yesterday we visited an elderly man who lost his wife last year. He is so lonely without her. My hubby and I went and visited him to try to bring him a little cheer. He and his wife had been married for 55 years.

As far as a mission trip for this year, I'm still praying about where the Lord would have me go.

What about you? Any New Year's resolutions that you have kept (or broken) this year?
Blogging about it seems to help with accountability.

Have a blessed week!

New Year's Revolution

Instead of a "Resolution," I'm planning on a New Year's "Revolution!" I've been reading the book: "Radical" by David Platt. It has challenged me to the core. I've been inspired in the following five areas.

1. This year I'm challenged to read the Bible all the way through in one year.
2. This year I'm challenged to pray for each nation in our world, one nation at a time.
3. This year one of my goals is to give more sacrifically.
4. This year one of my goals is to go on a "mission" trip.
5. This year I'm challenged to share the blessing of Jesus with others in very tangible ways.

This is a one year challenge. I will let you know how it's going!

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions? What about a New Year's REVOLUTION?
