Happy New Year!!!!
Well the new year is here! And.. like I promised I worked on my goals for this upcoming year. But first I want to share an activity we did last night while waiting for the arrival of 2017.
We met at our friends house and had lots of food and played games! Right before the New Year we sat around and wrote out on index cards if we had any mistakes, regrets, anger, bitterness or something we hadn't asked forgiveness or forgiven someone from. We took a moment and wrote it out and one by one we threw the index cards in the fire, symbolically of letting go that thing that held us up in 2016.
Too many times we allow these negative feelings to entangle us. In Hebrews 12:1 it saysTherefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us"
