Grace & Truth for Becoming Like Jesus

January 11, 2019 |
Grace and Truth a weekly Christian link-up

This time of year is full of high hopes and good intentions. We all try our best to make our lives better. We declare the new year a fresh start and diligently plung ahead full steam.

We spend more time at the gym, and are more conciencious of our eating habits. We resolve to spend less money and eat at home more. To spend less time on Facebook and more time in God’s Book.

But in all our good intentions, did we miss the most important life goal of all?

That’s what Maree Dee wrote about in her post last week on Embracing the Unexpected. New Year’s Resolutions and life goals are great, but the most important goal any of us can have is becoming more like Jesus. Maree shares more in our featured post for this week with both grace and truth. I definitely recommend hopping over and checking it out.

In addition to sharing tips for reaching your goals, she also offers some much needed grace. Well… I needed it anyways. Check out the comments section of her post if you want to see which part I needed to read the most.

    Heather – Thank you for featuring my post. Would you believe I am still wrestling with my “Spiritual Goal” for the year? I am not quite ready to claim it. It is a hard one for me.

    Your words were so kind in your post. Thank you. I hope you have a spectacular weekend.

    Blessings, Maree

    This year as I’ve been setting goals I am drawn back to prayer time and time again. I so want to reflect Jesus… as I focus on improving my Marriage and getting healthy I know God has to be at the centre of it all.
