#8 It’s been donkey years!!

So… I decided that I can’t just let this blog die. Haha I’m here to revive it with my first post of 2016! Sorry that I’ve been really bad with this blogging thing.

It feels like not that long ago that we were in Dec 2015, but in the blink of an eye it’s already March 2016! :O So much of the year has passed already. Some buzzwords for the year – PHD, New Season, Harvest Mentality, Gift Mentality… It’s gearing up to be a really exciting year, and I’ve gotta get a move on it!

Today I finished reading Good or God (it was on my February reading list so I’m a bit delayed) and I gotta say that this is a MUST-READ for everyone. It’s so relevant for our day and age and it brings us back to the basics of what it means to have a relationship with Christ – pursuing Him, pursuing holiness, pursuing what is of God rather than what we ourselves deem is good. I can’t summarize it for you but I trust that it will stir your heart, mind and spirit as it did mine.

On the note of reading books, I’ve decided to compile a reading list for myself so that I can keep to the plan of reading 2 books every month. I went to take a look at the Bookstore (or is it called Shoppes now?) over the weekend to see what books they have there. And I have some books I bought previously that I’ve not read either. I shall be more intentional about reading so that I can grow, as SPs always say that

Leaders are Readers

and this is part of my plans for ‘Making Progress’ this year. If anyone has any book recommendations, please let me know as well!

This week I also received my BF Finisher memento, and I am so glad!!!!!!! My puzzle is complete. I think that BF really stretches me to be disciplined, to save, to not spend unnecessarily, to be creative in thinking of ways to earn/save more money. Even though we’ve moved into our New Home already, I’m still looking forward to more BFs. God has put it into my heart to pray and prepare for BF2016, so I’m going to do that. I also have dreams for future BFs!! Learning to dream bigger because our God can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think, so why restrict Him, right?

May your week ahead be filled with big, bold dreams and actions to bring you closer to them! And of course, to be guided by godly wisdom and love.
