In that post, I quoted this verse:
“So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. Your heart’s been in the right place all along. You’ve got what it takes to finish it up, so go to it. Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t. The heart regulates the hands.” 2 Corinthians 8:10-11 Message
In an effort to move forward in many areas of my life here is the progress I’ve made so far:
I’ve been reading through the Bible in a year. I’ve been consistent and feel like the Lord has been opening my eyes to so much more of who He is and how much He loves us.
This month I also completed my second 1/2 marathon. I shocked myself by finishing 24 minutes faster than last year!
I’m continuing to move forward as a writer. Besides writing consistently on this blog and writing a couple of guest posts, I’ve been working on a small e-book. I plan to have it available on my blog May 23rd. One of my prayers, interestingly enough, is that those who read this book will be encouraged to not give up and to keep moving forward.
I am continuing to lead Women’s Bible Study at my church. It’s been neat to see God do His thing each week. All I do is show up and serve and He takes over.
As the summer approaches, I would like to shift my focus slightly and take advantage of all the additional time my 8-year-old son and I will have to spend together once the school year is completed. I want to be fully present when I am with him. It’s crazy how hard this is for me to do sometimes.
I also want to continue moving forward in the area of confidence. I want that negative tape that some times plays in my head to become less and less frequent. I want to continue replacing the lies I have a tendency to hold onto with His Truth.
I am thankful that as I move forward, God is my cheerleader. He roots for me, even when I have days when I feel like I haven’t made any progress or have taken several steps backwards. I am thankful for His patience and His grace.
Now it’s your turn.
If you chose one, how are you doing with your One Word?
