How I'm Starting Off this New Year

So I've been thinking about what I could possibly write for my first post of the new year, and it has been difficult to say the least. 

It wasn't until I was on my way home last night that it clicked. Of course, my New Years resolution has something to do with health, but that is so typical. 

So typical to where I felt guilty about it this past Sunday at church. The message definitely spoke to me.

I want to change. Change the way I feel towards others. I want God to work through me. I want Him to help me. I want Him to be my motivator. And guess what? He is those things. Those things and way more. I pray to love others more because God loves. Do more for others not to benefit myself, but because God does so much for us. I pray to worship Him more, spread His word, and continue to grow more in love with Him each day. He is my everything and I want everything I do to be for Him. 

That's including health.

God has provided me the ability to do incredible and beneficial things with my body, and I definitely do not want to abuse that. A healthy body has to start from the inside first. As for the outside? God created our bodies differently, but He also created wonderful nutrients to help us stay healthy. I started my blog not for myself, but for others. I pray to use the body and nutrients that God has given me to help out others to love the way they are and/or what they healthily can become. Most importantly, I pray to help others know Him and fall in love with Him more than anything in this world.

I guess this is where I am going to end this scatterbrained post. I have no idea how God is going to use me this year and beyond, but I cannot wait to see what He does. I trust Him with all of me, and I pray that you trust Him too.
