January 1, 2013 not only started a new year but a decision to create a vision board for myself. For those unfamiliar with his concept a vision board is a collage of words and/or pictures which represent what you want to achieve for the year or over a period of time. Most people used old magazines to cut out phrases, pictures of things they want to have (new house, ring, car, travel locations).
For me, I decided to refrain from pictures and simply focus on words that I wanted to demonstrate throughout the year.
It’s all about taking control and stepping outside of the box.
My faith is important to me, so I have committed to building more of a relationship with GOD
At the center of my vision board is Psalms 16, notice the word “peace”( much needed):
Keep me safe, my God,
for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names on my lips.
5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful[b] one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Happiness is another important piece to the puzzle of life.
