To Make More Of Him

I kept reading blog after blog of amazing women talking about making their blogs all about Jesus.
To make more of Him.
To make every post reflect His love, His grace, His mercies.

To me it was a "yeah-of-course" but it's still MY blog.
And it was a roll off the shoulder, put on the back burner type of thing.
Nothing to truly deepen in me. 
Until today.
I'm not sure why.
But it hit me hard.
This isn't just MY blog.
This beautiful life that I've been blessed with IS NOT ABOUT ME.
Everything I am.
Everything I do.
My screw ups, my messiness, my beauty, my heart.

IT'S ALL ABOUT HIM.

Who He is changing me to be. Who I am. How He loves me just as I am but has no intention of leaving me this way. The way He is leading us to foster care. How He is teaching me GRACE over and over and over and over. Learning more and more about HIS LOVE, not the world's boxy standards of HIS love.

And I've been thinking more about my resolutions.
So I hope it's totally ok to make some changes because I am.

My revised resolutions:

1. TO MAKE MY LIFE [ALL OF IT] MORE ABOUT HIM, MORE OF HIM!
2. Yes, to lose weight. But not just to lose weight. To lose the baggage, the addiction. To gain strength and courage. To remember this body is a temple. This time on earth is so short, I don't want to live it trying to cover myself up, to live with disease caused by what I eat.
3. To read, study, know Revelations. As I said before I had this fear about reading Revelations. 
4. To continue to learn more about my ministry as a wife & mother. That ministry will be challenged this year as we embark into the foster care system.
