January first seems too crowded with resolutions to fit in my own yearly reflections, so I’m thinking about what I want for this next year of my life on my birthday instead.

As I was feeding my newborn this morning my heart felt so full. I love my husband and my two precious daughters and I can’t imagine anything better. But there is something better. God himself.

David writes in Psalm 4:7, “You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.”

God himself satisfies more than another year of life, more than good meals with good friends, more than arms full of little girls.

So my desire for this year is that God would fill my heart with greater joy than when the blessings in my arms abound.

(PS There’s still plenty of time to Win a Starbucks Gift Card!)
