Seek

Posted by Kristin Rauch in blog | family | Goals | home | luke | New Year

I started this year with one little word as my guide: Seek     I have seen scrapbookers use this method to motivate their year and have always loved the idea but never done it. This year I thought I would try it out.  So I thought and thought and finally settled on Seek.

Psalm 9:10
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord , have never forsaken those who seek you.

This year I want to seek God more and improve me personal relationship with him because the last couple years I have been way to lax and excused my laziness with being a new mother. But there are no excuses in my book for not working on my relationship with God.  So I strive to seek God and His plans for my life as best I can.

 

This year I want to seek myself. In that I want to find my niche, be confidant in myself, body image, personality, beliefs, everything, and that will take some seeking to get there because I always had issues with confidence and knowing exactly who I am. I don’t know if I will get to the point of being perfectly myself as we are always changing and nobodies perfect. I would like to start down that path of loving myself and being happy with what I am and where I am currently instead of always dreaming of what could be.

This year I want to seek how to make these last months as a family of three memorable and also seek out how to be a great mother as we transition into being a family of four. My husband and I fully believe our children are the Lords and He has intrusted them to us to care for, love, and raise them in a Christ like manner. I haven’t been doing the best job on being a fun and Christ like mom lately with feeling so awful with this pregnancy but I am hoping to seek out how to find that balance for the rest of my pregnancy, and continue it throughout the year.

This year I want to seek out simplicity. I have to much stuff. :) To put it simply! ha. I would like to declutter, detach myself from stuff, and get rid of things. This also stretches to organizing and being on top of things like meal planning, activities and such. I am relatively organized but I like pretty things and my crafting, thrifting, vintage loving self has issues with leaving things behind. ;) So seeking simplicity is a must this year as our family expands.

Seek.

Do you have a word this year? I would love to hear about it or just your goals.

The photos in this post have nothing to do with my word of the year. I did the 10 on 10 and haven’t got to post them yet. But as you can see it was a lazy day at home. ;) One of the best ways to spend your day.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

  • Great post! Ive been struggling myself just seemingly since the new year with many things. Im still waiting on the Lord….I know he’s just waiting for me to LET GO of it all but instead I keep hanging on for some dumb reason.
    I remember being where you are-wanting to soak up the moments of being a family of three before K came along. Make that happen. And then bask in the newness that comes with growing too:)
    Its going to be a good year for you:) I believe in your talents 100%. I’ll be anxiously waiting in the wings to watch you discover it too! :)
