The Need for Change!

I want to say hello, and a very Happy New Year to all Journey to Destiny readers! I hope that your holiday season was blessed and Christ focused. I really took some time to just enjoy the small things in life over the past few weeks. While in this time, I also had The Journey to Destiny heavily in my thoughts.
One way that we learn is through our own personal experiences and life refelections. The Bible does not truly come alive for some until it can be directly related to thier life in some way. I feel that God is wanted the Journey to Destiny to be more interactive for its readers. I want each of my readers to be left with something to think about.
Yes, I share my struggles, testimonys, and growth processes with you, but what about your own? Do you truly share them with yourself? And, the way the scripture applies to my life may not be the way it applies to your life.
Also, I am not really a person that sets New Years Resolutions, for several reasons. For one, I always seem to be really passionate about them at the beginning of the year, then somehow, I slack off that they disappear from my mind and my actions. Also, I understand the whole idea of starting over, but if I started over every time, I would never be able to see my growth, so I choose to ways that I want to grow. And, my growth focus for 2010 is to grow in the word of God. I want to study more, learn more, and continue to heavily seek His face. After God gave me the ministry of The Journey to Destiny and MendedSpirit Ministries, I found myself still reading, but I was writing more than I was studying.

So, here are the changes to The Journey to Destiny for 2010:
1. There will only be 2-3 posts a week. (Mostly on Tuesday, Thursday, and one weekend day)
2. There will be reflection questions at the end of each post. These questions will be there to make the site more interactive for you and to help you directly apply the Word to your life. (sort of a devotional format) You may choose to get a notebook or journal to keep the questions and answers in each week so you can reflect back upon them later.
3. I am asking for your feedback. Let me know how God is moving in your life. If you need some spiritual advice of have a topic you would like me to cover, please feel free to e-mail,send me a private message on the guestbook, inbox me on facebook, or make comment after the posts. You can do this anonomyously if you wish to.

I am excited about what God is going to do for you and The Journey to Destiny in 2010 and the years to come. I thank God for you traveling on this journey with me. Love and Blessings!
