Fresh Start=reprioritize.

Today begins a new semester. A fresh start. A clean slate.

I have uncommitted myself from some things. And committed myself to others. I didn’t make new years resolutions, but instead have set some goals and tried to ‘reprioritize’ a bit from last semester.

I began the morning with weight training. Go ahead and laugh a little. Everyone seems to do so when I share this. However, getting ‘buff’ is not among my top priorities. I merely heard it was a practical (and easy) class.

Instead, this semester I desire to invest myself in what I do. I want to invest all of me. And love it.

Relationships are a priority—intentionally spending time with friends and acquaintances.

Ministry is a priority—growing and sharing a vision both locally and internationally.

Discipleship is a priority—to be discipled and to disciple.

School is a priority—not only to make good grades, but also to learn. Or maybe it’s not only to learn but also to make good grades.

Truly living is a priority. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “we are always getting ready to live but never living.” So I shall learn from yesterday and plan for tomorrow while I trust God with the future and let go of the past that I may live in the present not missing a moment that passes.
