Is it just me or does it seem like everyone really wants this year to be over even more so than usual? I mean, everyone that I’ve talked to outside of my family cannot wait for 2016 to be over. I know that it’s been a difficult year, with the election, terrorist attacks, shootings, Aleppo, ISIS, etc, but even if everyday wasn’t good, there was good in everyday.
Truth be told, I’ve had a fantastic 2016 and I’m a bit sad to see it go. (And does it bother anyone else when the year isn’t an even number? Just me? ) A lot of great things happened to me this year. And while it wasn’t always perfect, I’m not a bit ashamed to say that I enjoyed this year. It has been a year of growth for me personally. It’s challenged me in ways that I didn’t want to be challenged and I’ve really grown closer to God this year and completed my one main goal (finish the entire Bible- yay!) .
Last year on January 1st, I set out on my resolution/pilgrimage (since I refused to call it a resolution since those don’t usually last that long… 🙂 ) (By the way, if you want to read that full post, click here.)
I stated that I wanted to grow in faith.
So, did I?
Well, it’s hard to say. Am I as close to Him as I want to be? Not really. Have I grown closer? Undoubtedly. I even stated on January 1st that I wasn’t sure that I’d ever grow as close to God as I wanted to, yet I’m a tiny bit disappointed.
Do you have any goals for the new year? What are they?
