Advance Forward

Thinking back over 2014... 

Our oldest girl started kinder. 
We brought a new house and moved in! 
We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. 
We went on an overseas cruise trip. 
We became expectant again.
We grew together as a family. 
We grew in God! 
We witnessed miracles. 
We saw salvation in our own home!! 
We have been blessed to have loving, empowering, real and Godly friends. 

It was a GREAT year! Thank you God. 

I'm looking forward now to 2015 I see... 
A completed renovation. 
Two big girls at kinder. 
A new little princess to be born. 

Plus more, more, more. I am believing for a year of advance. Moving forward towards God, the ways of the Spirit and His blessings and favour over our lives. For His Kingdom. And for His glory. Amen! 

1. Don't sit back. Be deliberate. Push into God. Don't get lazy. 

Proverbs 19:15 Lazy people sleep soundly, but idleness leaves them hungry. 

2. Don't get sidetracked!! Focus on Kingdom things. You can't run a race without focus. 

Philippians 3:13-14 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. 

3. Look forward! 

Philippians 1:6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
