Getting Back My Groove

With a New Year comes an opportunity for change.

An opportunity to put a stake in the ground and say "There is no going back from this point." A choice to only move forward, no matter what comes our way.

Today I did just that.

2010 was pretty much a write-off as far as my relationship with God goes and I'm really sad to admit this, but hey, let's move on huh?

I could blame it on my struggle with PND and lacking all motivation - because most days the only prayer I could utter was "God, help me!"

But I don't want to list out all the excuses - I just want to move forwards now.

So while Beni was taking his morning nap I blew the dust off my bible (literally), sat in my favourite chair with a large cup of tea and put my 'stake in the ground'.
'Artistic' scribble on my bible page is c/o Luca aged 1 year. Not because I was angry :)

This is how it's going to be from now on.
No more excuses Brigitte.
I want growth on the inside, I want change and now is the time.
For myself and for the sake of my husband and my children I'm taking a new grip and strengthening my weary knees.
I'm marking out a straight path for my feet to walk.
It's all good and I'm excited about all this year holds for me individually and for us as a family.

I'm so very thankful that God never stops loving, that his grace just goes on and on.
It blows my mind actually because I would be so frustrated at me by now if I was God!
Thankfully I'm not.

How about you? Are you marking out a new path this year? Wanting change? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it and encourage you along the way X


  1. I love it - so I'm gonna put a stake in the ground too for I too found 2010 rather lacking in my God time (though my bible doesn't have dust on it - cos i lost it somewhere in 2009 - maybe just before Nate was born!!!! How bad is that - I did read James' bible now and then tho...) So I'm going to buy myself a new bible, and read it. And yes, I'm so glad God is so amazingly loving and forgiving cos if I was Him, I would've given up on me ages ago. Thanks for your honesty and inspiration - you rock geets! xox

  2. Sisters think alike - I've been doing the same this morning - and this song had me more than a bit teary eyed, and it's going to be my little anthem for the year. Think you'll agree. Love you x

  3. Good on you. May you find His word very near you and hear his whispers a little more clearly this year. May your stake go down into deep and solid foundations. x

  4. love it, so encouraging girl. He is so good, all the time. May you keep encouraging us with your decision and stuff you get from it! love love to you

  5. this is ME too!
    what's your plan for staying accountable?(that's always where I fail...)
    so excited for you


I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment X
