Day #29: Hopes, Dreams, and Plans I Have For the Next 365 Days

My one and only primary hope, plan, and dream this year is to draw ever closer to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Without Him, I would not even be able to live my life to the fullest potential of what God has in store for me.  He is everything I will ever need, want, hope, and yearn for.  Thank you Lord for the gift of your Son.  

Other plans this year include: continuing to grow into manhood that God has called me too; continuing to love my sisters, mom, grandmas, and aunts as I prepare for loving my future wife; and striving with all excellence in everything I do for the glory of God.  :)

Those are some wonderful goals for the year, Joshua. Drawing closer to our Lord is definitely the best thing any one can do.
I have to say that this year has definitely been a year of growth for me in that area. I have been more peaceful and more in love with my Lord than I have ever been before. It is truly amazing! I am so enjoying it that I just want to get deeper and deeper into Him.

It was great following you through the 30 day challenge. I hope to continue following you on your blogging journey. :)

In Christ's Service,
Sarah
