Praying and focusing on the new Year and my goals!

The New year will be here soon!! I have been really thinking about the new year and what I would love to see happen in my life and my families life and my Business.  I have learned that when I sit at the Lords feet and really focus on what he has for me I get a clearer picture. I am really laying out these goals and dreams and praying about them and seeing where God wants to guide me in this new year.  I am so excited about 2012! I am not sure why I just have such a great feeling about it.  I can't wait!!!  In the next couple of days I will post  my new goals and I can't wait to share them.  Have  a great New Year!

Breath of Heaven

Christmas is quickly approaching  and I have to admit is has been so hard to get into the mood this year.  Yesterday as I sat in Church and listened to Pastor Ryan speak on what an amazing Gift Christ was to us and that he BECAME MAN!! Yes he did. That moment took me away.  A few weeks ago he talked about Mary and how God chose her to do this work.  A humble, young girl that had a pure heart and was ready.  WOW!! I was moved yesterday as the Lord spoke to me in church asking me to please sit at his feet this week and listen to him, to lay the new year before him, and to ask where he wants me to go this year.  I love how God directs our paths.  Sometimes it is our human nature to want to direct our own paths and to go and do what we want to do.  When was the last time you let God direct your path?  I know that it can be very frightening at times, but God always brings you to the best that he has for you. RIGHT?

I have such a passion for the ministry and I love being a part of it.  Any part.  I love praying with people, I love teaching children about God's love, I love serving. I just love it all.  I also feel that My photography is part of my ministry.  I feel that God has opened this talent to reach into many lives and I love it.  As I sat at Christ feet this morning and I listened to this song I was moved to tears just thinking about how Mary felt that night.  How she was chosen to do this JOB.  I love the part when she sings," I offer all that I am and Help me to be strong." Yes Lord that is what I want. I want to offer all that am to you and help me to be strong. " Pour over me all your holiness. " I love that! I see the Holy Spirit just breathing new life into me. I love it. As the tears streamed down my face this morning I just sat here in my living room that was lit with just the Christmas tree lights and the candles and thanked my God for his gift.  The gift of life, the gift of freedom, the gift of LOVE.  I am so thankful for Christmas and all that it brings to us this year.

This new year will bring some mighty things.  I am looking forward to it.  I know that God has a lot in store for the Williams family, and  Marisela Photography.  I am looking forward to it with great anticipation.  Today I sat and listened to Gods heart.  For the next two weeks I am going to lay out my goals for the new year and really start praying over them to see where God Guides me.  Thank you Lord for calling me to your feet, and for hearing your sweet voice this morning.  I love you! I am so excited to celebrate Christmas this week and to have a ton of fun with the kiddos!
Merry Christmas!
