Here are a few things that I wish to accomplish this year. Most of these revolve around my self-worth and finding joy and happiness with Jesus. I also encourage you all do also create a faith-based bucket list for this year :).
- Learn my self-worth comes from God and not boys
- Develop a relationship with Jesus
- Learn to love other people
- Learn to find happiness with Jesus instead of finding happiness in boys
- Stop comparing myself to other people and learn to be thankful for what I have
This is just a few that I wish to work on :). Between all of these, I really wish to at least complete 4 and 2. The others are important as well, but I really wish to focus on those two a little more.
Thank you all for reading!

If any of those relationships had succeeded,
I would have never know the peace
in having 1 year of life without anything to do…

A woman stood up and started pouring out her heart about how she desired a husband. How she was in her late thirties and did not want to be alone anymore. She said that she was on the verge of ‘settling’!
In an attempt to comfort her, an older woman whom we will call Sarah stood up and proclaimed that she was single at 60 AND had never married. Sarah started to encourage the younger lady. She said, look at me, I am 60 and not married but I will not settle. I want what God wants for me and will not settle for less. I have had many counterfeit men come into my…
