New year.. Same me..

Happy new year everyone!! I know the last year flew by for me and probably for all of you! Why does it seem to go faster and faster every year?! 

Last year I did so much growing and learning! I would have to say that 2014 was an amazing year for me. 
I turned 30 which I was actually excited about! Jesus was 30 when he really started his ministry and not that you need a certain age to do ministry I just felt like I grew so much spiritually that I was finally ready to put myself out there more in ministry. 
I worked on my discipline a lot this year, staying rooted in the word, watching my mouth, controlling my thoughts, and changing things about myself that I didn't like. None of that stuff is easy at all but over time it gets easier and eventually the good over takes the bad naturally. 
I finally had a chance to act in complete obedience, acting out of 100% faith and it was so amazing! I can't even explain the feeling and the experience! 
I finally feel like I have a purpose in this world and something to look forward to, I have a true geniuine peace and happiness that can only be experienced through God. 
So what's on the agenda for this year? This year I plan to keep working on myself, to give more, love more, help more. There is so much that I want to do and learn and I feel like so little time. I have finally figured out my gifts {2 atleast, I can't imagine I have more then that!} so I will and have been using them in the ways that I can. 
I'm working on finding ways to contribute some money to our household and hoping to find a hobby that I'm passionate about in the meantime. I'm really wanting to go on a mission trip to Mexico this year with my church and I have been praying about how I can get fully involved in my church. I think I know what the answer is, I just need to dive in and do it. 
My ultimate goal is to be better this year then I was last year, that's all I can ever hope for. 
I hope you all have some great resolutions, dreams and goals and I hope that you go for them!
