Focus For a New Year

We are entering a new year!  What is your focus for the year of 2012?  2011 was the year of JOY in our home.  2012 will be the year of GRACE.    
 
Following is a quote from the forward of  GIVE THEM GRACE by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson.
 
“The irony of the gospel-based sanctification is that those who end up obeying more are those who increasingly realize that their standing with God is not based on their obedience but on Christ’s. …. The power to obey, in other words, comes from being moved and motivated by the completed work of Jesus for us.   So, while the law directs us, only the gospel can drive us.”
 
God did not leave me (us) with the LAW HE sent GRACE!
 
I am anticipating this new year.  We will be studying the book of John and the names of Christ.  And this year, instead of detailed lists of goals hanging over my head, I have prayed about areas of focus (order in my home, health and fitness, school, ministry).  While I do have a broad ideas for each of these areas, I am praying God will direct my path!
 
May He richly bless you this year,
April

    new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable information to work on. You

  2. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a
    blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice
    from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. I’ll immediately take hold of your rss as I can’t find your e-mail subscription hyperlink
    or e-newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please permit
    me understand in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.

  4. It’s enormous that you are getting ideas from this piece of writing as well as from our argument made at
