Okay, so I know I'm like two weeks late, but really are you surprised?
I'm not usually a fan of New Year's resolutions or picking a single word or things like that.
They make me feel boxed in.
But this year I want to be boxed in.
I want to be limited.
This year I believe God is leading me to go without.
To spend this year not spending.
This year, I'm taking a break from clothes.
I will not be buying any new clothes this year.
Because I feel God challenging my pocket book. I feel God challenging my heart for justice. And most importantly I feel God challenging my ability to trust in him, to put my want for him above my want for skinny jeans.
Along with my sweet friend Carly I'll be refocusing my view of need.
And I'll be blogging about it.
The last few months God has made my ugly materialistic heart clear to me. In his beautiful grace he reminds me that there is more to life, more to Him, than having the newest fashions.
My goal is not to go without, but to go with. To go with God. To go with His heart for money. To go with His heart for buying from justice-minded places.
Come along for the ride?
