It’s hard to experience growth and progress if you are not moving forward. If I’m not moving I have a tendency to sit back and settle for the comfortable and the familiar.
But this year, I want to keep moving forward.
I like how Francis Chan said it. “It is true that God may have called you to be exactly where you are. But, it is absolutely vital to grasp that he didn’t call you there so you could settle in and live your life in comfort and superficial peace.”
This year I am joining others at One Word 365 who are tossing out New Year’s Resolutions and choosing one word to focus on for this year. Because “one word can change everything.”
So this year, my one word is Forward.
This year I want my one word to prompt me, remind me and encourage me to persevere in every aspect of my life. This year I want to stop getting sidetracked
This year I want to keep moving forward…as a wife, a mother, a friend, a writer.
“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
