Well, I Did It!

Well, I did it. I finished ALL five daily devotionals for 2012. They are Streams In the Desert by L. B. Cowman, Update by Jim Reimann – Believing In Myself by Earnie Larsen & Carol Hegarty - Courage to Change, One Day at a Time in Al-Anon II – One Day at a Time in Al-Anon – and Joyce Meyer, Promises for Your Everyday Life on YouVersion Bible App for the smart phone. Some of these daily devotionals I started reading back in 1992 but never finished them. Today I realize I was never supposed to finish them until now.

Last year my new year’s resolution was to lower my expectations. The lesson in lowering my expectations is the acceptance that other people are going to do what they’re going to do and I am powerless over that. But, the freedom of it is knowing I don’t have to subject myself to someone else’s bad behavior.

Every day I wake up and tell myself that I am the daughter of a Righteous King. After that, I tell myself what other people say about me is none of my business. At the end of the day God knows the truth and He knows my heart and that’s all that matters.

What’s my new year’s resolution this year? Well, I think this year I’m going to work on using my laptop without the mouse. It will be a lot better for my right hand in the long run.
