Word for the Year
I want to focus on building my strength this year, and this applies to all areas of my life, but primarily the physical, emotional, and spiritual areas of my life.
Physical: I want to be strong! Sure, being fit and hot is a plus, too, but more than that, I want to be a strong person. I am tired of being a weakling. I am tired of being tired, for that matter. I want to significantly raise my level of fitness, and I know that unless I make it a priority with exercise and strength-training, it won't happen. This includes improving my eating, sleeping, and resting habits, as well.
Emotional: I want to be strong emotionally. That doesn't mean I want to stifle my tears and put on a happy face. It means I want to invest in areas that are healthy for me emotionally, namely relationships. It's too easy for me to let friendships go when I am overwhelmed and exhausted, and I want to change that.
Spiritual: I have grown closer to Christ in these past years, learning to lean on Him and trust Him. But my daily practices of prayer and reading the Bible have been an afterthought. I am starting the One-Year Bible again, which has been an awesome thing for me to do in the past. And I am committing to daily times of prayer.
This year has a lot of changes coming our way, and I want to rely on God to have me as prepared as I can be.
What about you? Do you have a word for the year?
