This year I have enjoyed reading everyone’s recaps of the year and goals for 2018, while thinking what do I need to change for 2018? I kept seeing a lot of goals that were great but not a lot really speaking to me. Until someone shared this.....
“If someone bumps into you while holding a cup of coffee and you spill coffee everywhere, Why was the coffee spilt? Well because the person bumped into you of course, wrong. The coffee spilt because that is what you had in your cup. If you had milk, tea, wine you would have spilt milk, tea or wine.”
There is a point...when people “bump” into you what spills over? Is it joy? Is it happiness? What are you full of? Just like the cup spilled what was in it. We spill what we are full of also. So I started thinking my goal this year should be something about filling my cup with good things so good things spill out, but was not fully happy with my 2018 goals.
I opened my Bible New Years Eve still in the back of my mind thinking tomorrow is 2018 and I want to really set intentions for the year. Sometimes I like to just randomly open my Bible and read wherever it opens. New Years Eve I opened to a place in my Bible where it was telling about Mary, but it was my words that really spoke to me. I had written around the scriptures. “Mary a great example of just do it” “Mary the ulitimate of blessed people” When God asked, she did!
I am laid back with somethings but the ultimate worry wart with others. I give things to God but then think I need to take it back and help him worry. Sounds right, correct? Haha NO! God’s got this.
2017 and 2016 were years of change, love, heartache, growing, long nights, hard work, worrying, memories, laughing, Glass Doctor, and praying. 2018 I am secretly hopping for nomalacy. I don’t mean not doing great things, but no new houses, no new surprises with our house, business to grow steadily, continue to work on goals at school, everyone be healthy, no hurricanes, and that list could go on.
So, here is my goal for 2018 to let happiness, joy, love, spill out on people while I am trusting in God and “just do it” for Him. Wow those words seem easy but that is going to be something I will have to be reminded of, hence why I am sharing my goal with everyone. What is your goal?
