Happy New Year!!!!

Ok, well maybe it's a little late, but better now then never! :D It has already been a fun start to the year and we are only 23 days into it. Our family is healthy, but the Lord has been speaking to me about complacency, which is always a great. So the definition is...


self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies 2: an instance of usually unaware or uninformed self-satisfaction (borrowed from

So here is the deal with why this has been a thing for me...last Nov. I started working for our church in the nursery. I love my job, it allows me to have my kids with me and I get to serve the families from our church. But sometime last year I lost my zeal, my passion, I think I moved into a place where I was serving and that was good enough, no need to do anything else. I love to speak encouragement in to women's lives, it's part of my Spiritual giftings. I know that when you don't use your giftings they start to dry up and soon you don't realize that you are even missing anything. It's crazy how quickly the enemy can come and make us complacent with our situation. Telling us that we don't need anyone to speak into our lives or visa versa. But it's just not true. We need that, especially if it is a gift. After talking with a women from my church and sharing my heart with her, God re-lit that passion of sharing God's word with people. I need that, to share what God is speaking to my heart, so here we are starting another year, and I am praying that He will continue to speak to me, about my life, so that I can share my heart with you. Getting out of that place that is comfortable and cozy is hard, and putting yourself out there, with what may sometimes be crazy thoughts and ideas is hard, but I am determined to open my mouth this year.
So I hope that you also have a great year of moving our of complacency and into His arms.
