Re-Freshed

Woo Hoo! It's a new day! I love life and just want to embrace every minute of it. When I go to bed at night I'm already looking forward to the morning to see what a new day's going to bring!
This year- I've really been sorting out my priorities. (Don't you like that refreshed feeling that a new year brings that makes you feel like you need to get re-organized, re-prioritized, and re-Freshed. I love it~  My husband and I have really been going over our goals for the year as a couple, as a family, and individuals. (I'm not going to say he enjoys this as much as me)

Something that I am learning as a follower of Christ is.... The more you want to live your life to glorify Him- the more "different" you're going to be from the rest of society. Which is why it's so important to find your Identity in Christ. Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

I want to be one of these people! Who are not conformed but transformed! I'm very easily motivated and inspired. I get really fired up and encouraged when I see other people living their life identified with Christ and making choices and who have actions that reflect that(fruits). Their choices are usually very different than the mainstream choices. But it very much touches my heart and brings me pure Joy to see this! They don't hang their head when they make these choices or stands. They do it proudly and confidently with love and grace. It cheers me up to see people rooted in their identity and Christ. Let's all do that:) That is... To find our identity in Christ and live in that way boldly, intentionally, and passionately. It will bless those in our lives, be pleasing to the Lord, and minister to someone that we don't even know. Lord- help me to live passionately and intentionally for you!

With all that being said--- and going back to my goal/priority statement. What are some of your goals this year that support your identity in Christ? How are you different? How are you conformed but need to be transformed?
