A few years ago our family and some of our friends started making a God list instead of doing resolutions. I used to always make my resolutions and then promptly (by about January 23) forget that I had made them.
Honestly, I am not sure that I’ll ever learn French even though it was on many of my resolution lists over the years.
So just what is this God list??
It’s a list of goals you would like to reach that you absolutely know there’s no way you could reach without God.
We shoot for the moon on ours. It is amazing what God will do when you humble yourself and ask Him.
Top of our list every year is a happy family. That is something that we can’t do on our own.
The world is too close. It wants to creep into our house.
But God has covered us every time we have asked Him.
The world wants me to show disrespect to my husband–God shows me a caring and loving man that does everything in his power to make us happy.
The world wants me to give my kids everything to make them happy–God shows me happy children playing in the yard with friends.
The world wants me to make more money, wear better clothes and have more ‘me’ time–God shows me that I’m happier when I don’t focus on myself.
I am so grateful for every answered prayer. Sometimes it’s not the answer I wanted or just KNEW should happen. But 100% of the time it has been the answer that was needed. I have never looked back and thought that God missed an opportunity. Or gave the wrong answer. Or didn’t answer me in some way.
I am sharing my printout with you today in hopes that you will join me and see how God answers you.
He loves you.
He delights in you.
He created you.
Don’t you think he wants to hear from you?
The verse at the bottom of this page is 1Peter 5:6-7 which states
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
I would love it if you would keep me posted from time to time on what God is doing in your life. I will do the same with you.
