The other day, I shared that this year isn’t a typical year. While I have some goals in mind that I would like to make progress on, I don’t have any traditional resolutions.
There is one new years thing that I joined in with last year that I loved. That would be choosing one word. One word to reach out and grasp a better concept of. One word to challenge myself to live up to, in a way. Last year, that word was limitless. It was quite a journey. Here are a few snippets from that journey.
With all the challenges, changes, and learning curves that are bound to come my way in the next year, trust is going to be key for keeping my eyes where they need to be. Trust is what will keep me from spinning out of control when uncertainties, insecurities, and fear tries to knock me down.
Trust is to believe in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of something or someone. Trust is a huge area of struggle in my life. It doesn’t matter what or where the trust is to be placed, I almost always have a hard time allowing myself to even attempt to trust.
Ginny Owens – If You Want Me To
This song is one I’ve known for a long time and just rediscovered. I really think that this song will be key to help me refocus on trusting His way for me, my marriage and my family.
I have also chosen a verse to go with this word. To challenge me. To memorize. To help me remember to always trust Him above all. The verse is Psalm 31:14:
“But as for me, I trust in You, oh Lord, I say, “You are my God.”
Tell me friends…have you chosen a word, phrase, song, verse to help challenge you into a more consistent walk with our Creator? If so, please share.
