Happy New Year my brothers and sisters in Christ. It is the first day of 2019 which means you have a complete year to focus on living intentionally and with purpose. I’m sure we all can expect our social media accounts to be flooded with “New Year Resolutions,” and “Vision Boards.” I am one who takes the time to complete a “Vision Board” yearly. This year I did something different. I prayed for Yahweh to lead me to a foundational scripture to stand on for the entire year. Of course, He did just that. Among my many other goals, aspirations, and visions that are on my board. At the very top, you will find my 2019 Foundational Scripture.
The Scripture Reads,
2 Peter 1:3-11
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
Wow! What a promise from God to us. I highlighted in bold letters the instructions in the scripture as they will are my guide for this year. I love you with the love of the Lord. I am excited to grow and expand with you all this year. Thank you for allowing Mindful of Me Moments to be apart of your life. Blessings.

“Don’t take for granted the one who already has the RESOLUTION for everything you want, need, and desire. Make your relationship with Yahweh your priority in 2019.” Happy New Year!
