Resolutions for 2017


Happy New Year!  

 Here is a vlog to start out my 2017 posts. =)  I also have an important update to Having a Heart Like His, which I mention in the video.  Enjoy, and, if at all possible, please fill out my questionnaire!  =)  It is completely anonymous, and I am looking for constructive criticism.  =)

  1. WONDERFUL post, my friend! You're taking a break from blogging?! *sobs* But there is this other part of me that is saying, "GOD IS SO PROUD OF YOU RIGHT NOW, GIRL." You are doing this to figure out His purpose for your blogging life, and that is really awesome. I cannot WAIT to see what He leads you to do!!
    And btw, that vlog? EPICNESS. You need to do more of these--I wanna see your beautiful face speak again!! =) And I looove how this video wasn't "here are all my resolutions and I hope I can accomplish them and let's conquer the new year!" It was "God is going to do awesome things this year and so let's plan our priorities around Him and not ourselves!" Again, I've just gotta say GOD IS SO PROUD OF YOU, MY FRIEND.
    Can't wait to see what God will do in both of our lives this year!!!

    1. *sobs with you* I know, it's so sad, Ariel...I'll miss corresponding with you! But it will make me eager to "see" you again when I start back up. =) And I know that I need a break...I'm excited to re-evaluate things and catch my breath. =) Thank you so much for all your kind words. ♥

      Aw, thank you! I enjoy doing vlogs, but I always have to make sure that I'm doing them for the right reason, you know? =) But I would like to do more in the future!

      I don't know if "God is so proud of me"...lol. I try to live for Him, but I fail so often. I do hope that I can hear Him say, "well done my good and faithful servant." That would be so amazing...it would make every struggle so worth it. Can you imagine...? ♥ I still have a long way to go. =)

      Thank you for being so encouraging and loving, my friend!

    2. You're most welcome! =)
      Yeah, I understand...love that you are making sure that your motives are pure in even the little areas of life, though! ♥
      MAN OH MAN now 'I Can Only Imagine' by MercyMe is in my head...have you ever heard it? I looove that song!! But seriously, eternity has been on my mind lately. IT'LL BE EPIC...I sure hope I can hear God say "well done, my good and faithful servant!" to me as well. We've just got to make sure we use what He has given us to HIS glory!
      Goes both ways, girl! =)

    3. Ohhh! I do like I Can Only Imagine! It's an old favorite. =) I haven't thought about that song in a long time. *happy sigh* Thanks for the memory. ;) While eternity often feels scary thinking about it - it doesn't even fit in my mindset...forever? Without an end?! - sometimes I just long to be there. To be finished with all the trouble, sorrow, and pain of the earth. But our job here and now isn't done yet. =) What would it be like if we were continually focusing on eternity with Jesus instead of every earthly pleasure? Wow...

      Yes! Everything for His glory! ♥

    1. I'll miss you too, sweet Jaidyn! I have loved getting to know you through this blog. =) But I'm also looking forward to the break and to re-evaluating my blog through prayer. I hope that it's worth it in the long run. =) And you know how to contact me if you need anything! Don't hesitate if you need a listening ear. ♥

      Thank you for taking the survey!! I have loved reading over the responses. =) It's so much fun! And I'm glad that my vlog was encouraging. Have you (or God through you ;) ) made goals for this upcoming year?

      You are such a blessing to me! ♥

  3. Aww,Hosanna! You are one of the sweetest people I have meet, I know how much I'll miss reading your posts and chatting with you. =( But, I think it's great that your doing this for extra prayer time, and things along those lines. =D
    And yes, I know where to contact you if I need to talk to you. =D

    Your welcome!! I haven't really made any goals, but something I want to do this year is to post on my blog every week, and to write in my journal everyday. =)

    Thank you so much, Hosanna! Your comment made me smile. It really did. =D

    Your friend,

    1. I'm glad that I could make you smile. ♥ You did the same for me, Jaidyn. =) And I like your goals...it's hard for me to keep up with my journal too. I think I kind of gave up on it. =| But maybe one day I can resume journaling again...

      Have a wonderful January! =)
