So Long 2010

This is probably one of the busiest blogging weeks of the year.  It’s the time where most of us are reflecting on this past year, what went right and what we could’ve done different.  While others are planning for next year, things they want to accomplish and how they plan to stop doing things that are not working for them.  Well, wherever you are in this frame of thinking, remember what’s in the past, is in the past.  We have our whole lives ahead of us.  What a wonderful time to seek God and hear what He has for us to do.

I for one am excited about the New Year.  I have big plans and I’m expecting some wonderful things to manifest.  Since some days I feel that I can’t add another thing to my plate,  I’ve decided to only fill my plate with things that will help me be the person I desire to be, and will also take me to where I’m trying to go.  Sometimes you have to shake off the things of old, to make room for the things of new, and that’s what I’m doing.  It’s so easy to get caught up in things that are not getting you closer to fulfilling your destiny, but if we are conscious about what we want to do, and what God wants for us to do, it makes it a lot easier to stay on track.

So what are your thoughts about this coming year that you want to share?

Solid Foundation

I was just thinking… isn’t it amazing to watch how some people can go through horrendous things and waiver a little in their faith, where others, the smallest things can cause them to totally fall apart?  I’m sure we all have a theory on why that is, but today I’m thinking that it has something to do with our foundation.  Yesterday, parts of Georgia was hit by heavy winds and rain, causing houses to be leveled and others severe damage.  And then there were other homes that were able to withstand the elements.  Why is that?  Could be the material used when building; could be because of how and where the house was position on the slab, or it could be that it was just one of those things in life that had to happen…for whatever reason. 

Working in construction for over 10 years, I know that typically it’s the foundation that determines the stability, strength and in some cases the value of a house/building.  But for humans, I think it’s the attitude, integrity, character, and their faith that gives insight of what type of foundation their lives are built on.  These foundational things help determine how others view you; whether you’ll be able to persevere through the storms of life; and in some cases the type of relationships you have with people or how you interact with them.

What do you think?  Would you say there are different elements that make up our foundations?
