That’s what 2017 will be for me … Intentional. In everything that I do, everything that I say, everything that I write, to every work of my hand, my heart, and my mind … it will be intentional and purposed. Why, you may ask?
Because GOD IS INTENTIONAL!
As I mentioned in my first post, in reading the scriptures and looking at all that God did and is doing in the world today, it is evident that God is intentional in everything that he allows or denies. With the new year, several of my church brethren have taken up the challenge of reading through the bible in 90-days. I’m sure you can image how intense this might be — already in day-4, we are ending with the last book of Genesis.
Since I am just getting back in the groove of writing a blog, I will be intentionally starting with brief encouragements and inspirations. However, I must warn you, depending on how the Holy Spirit moves me, and what I’m given to say …. some of my writings will be a little longer and fuller. I hope to touch your heart, your mind or your soul … one way or another … one word at a time…with the love of God.
So, here are my beginnings for 2017:
January 3, 2017 – BE INTENTIONAL – FIRST: BE HONEST WITH GOD …
“12-Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13- Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.” Psalm 19:12-13
January 4, 2017 – GOD IS INTENTIONAL: GOD IS A GENTLEMAN
He doesn’t mind opening doors for you, and yet, he doesn’t mind moving out of YOUR WAY when you want to open your own door!
