It is now 2012. Each new year marks a fresh start; a new beginning, or a clean slate. We have an opportunity to set a few goals that can benefit our lives if we choose to stay the course, no matter if it’s to achieve a healthier body, healthier relationships, to increase our knowledge, or to learn a new skill. Accomplishing any of these goals will not only improve our lives as individuals, but can improve the lives of those around us. Small children, teenagers, young and mature adults alike all wish to accomplish something and to find purpose and meaning to their lives.
What are your goals for this new year? Could you volunteer to work with grieving children through GriefWorks, KidWorks, or Camp Erin? Could you refer a friend to receive help through CounselingWorks? Or perhaps you could tell couples and families about AdoptionWorks adoption services and adoption counseling?
Regardless of how you plan to serve others this year, not only will you help bring hope to another person’s life, but you will also experience the joy of seeing how the Lord actively works in your life today. May you enjoy the journey and blessings the Lord has planned for you in 2012!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11
