It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. That’s mostly because the past couple of months have involved a lot of reflection and re-evaluation of priorities. I hope to make some time to get back to blogging, but whether that happens or not, I wanted to share this.
It’s something I wrote a few years ago for a class. Nonprofits have mission and vision statements to help guide them. So why can’t we? Although I wrote this years ago, it still helps me focus when my mind seems to be going in a million different directions.
Because God has given me a voice .. I will always use it to make a difference and not to hurt others.
Because God has made me wide-eyed .. I will never shut my eyes to all things good in this world and will remember to find wonder, joy and love in even the smallest things.
Because God has loved me with no limits and made it known .. I will remember that love is a choice and will make sure those I love, know I love them
Because God makes Himself strong in my weaknesses .. I will find what they are and let him fill in the gaps.
Because God has given me joy .. I will rise above the circumstances and smile every day and I will encourage others to find joy in Him
Because God is a God of peace .. I will push fear aside with the reminder of His love and his many gifts.
Because God has given me gifts .. I will strengthen them and put them to use.
Because God has blessed me .. I will be a blessing to others
Because God made me in His image .. I will do my best to represent Him.
