Happy New Year FiCB!
Hey FiCB, remember the glory days of “Ask the Pig?” (Rather, the glory DAY). Fine…I admit that “P.In-It’s” potential only lasted as long as any ABC’s “The Bachelorette’s” marriage, but its my attempt to brush the cyber-dust off this blog and start fresh for 2013.
I’ll start this year off with a confession. I’m a moron. Especially when it comes to blogging. Before the dream to pursue my aspiring blogging career I was told that there were two simple rules to follow,
- Post Often.
- Post Interesting.
And, I did neither. If there are millions of preteen “Beliebers” blogging about Justin through the medium of “MS-Paint” AND attract thousands of hits daily, and I’m struggling to post and attract one person? I deserve to be called a ‘moran.’ But, I can change, I swear…
Nevertheless FiCB, I hope you have higher aspirations in 2013 than mine. Whether if you are turning new leaves this year regarding your academics, health (or even blogging), I pray your spiritual seasons will change as well. Despite whatever ‘season’ you are in (dry, stormy, fruitful, or joyful), I am confident the Lord will reveal His glory to you and His name through the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Just remember, that no matter if we fail (or succeed) in our goals this semester, consider what really matters the MOST! Paul reminds us Christians that seasons, semesters, or years do not guarantee change, rather the daily work of the Spirit always does.
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self his being renewed day by day.” – 2 Corinthians 4:16.
In other words, if/when we fall short of personal resolutions, we still have the spiritual victory in Christ (which includes with my failed blogging endeavors)! Therefore, trust in the accomplished and steadfast work of Christ in every step of your Christian Walk.
So with the remaining time of your vacation, let us take some time to reflect, to pray and to be hopeful that our fellowship will bring a blessed and fruitful Spring 2013! I look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
P.S. – Stay tuned for our “THEME” & Recommended Readings for the Spring semester.
