The New Year

Today’s PrayerPoint ~ The New Year

It’s a New Year! A Fresh Start!

As you have reflected back on last year have you pondered what went well and what didn’t? Are there things you know you need to change in your life but you haven’t made a move to start the process? Are there things you wish you would have done? Conversations you wish you wouldn’t have started? Actions you took that you wish you would have contemplated longer?

I am pretty introspective so I love the opportunity to reflect on my words and actions. Well, I don’t love it…because sometimes I am embarrassed as I look back on the things I have said and done. Being quick witted is not always a gift. And sarcasm? Well, let’s just say I have been guilty of sharing my words too liberally. I can build bridges with my words but, regrettably, I don’t always choose to do that.

I  am definitely a work in progress.

If you have been my friend for a while you know that PrayerPoints have been around for a number of years and are typically a daily event during the Lenten season. Last year I was in Hungary for the month leading up to Easter and since we did not have regular access to the
Internet while we were traveling I took a break from the routine. I have missed it!

PrayerPoints are something I need in my life. I don’t know that I necessarily need to share them with the world but I certainly have the need to write them. The process of writing helps me keep a little order in my mind. And I guess I figure I might as well share what I am learning just in case it helps someone else. It isn’t much work for me because I feel like God is teaching me things all the time if I would just take a minute from life to listen and pray. I miss PrayerPoints when I am not writing them so that tells me it is a place where I need to put my energy for now.

So here we are. I have a crazy busy year but I love PrayerPoints. 

What have you been missing in your life? Is it time to add it back in?
