Move Forward or Stand Still…the choice is ours.

As many of you know, this year I’ve chosen One Word to focus on. The word is Forward and you can read about my reason for picking this word HERE.

This year, I also joined Jon Acuff’s Finish Year community. Last week, he asked us to hand write those things we hoped to finish this year and then share the list on Twitter.

Here was the list I shared.

This week, I have moved FORWARD  and I have made good progress on my finish year list.

Today, I usually link up with The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday, but I’ve been working on my Finish Year list this morning instead. I did take a quick peek (I couldn’t help it!) at what the Five Minute writing prompt was today…AWAKE.

What a great word! It’s hard to make progress in life if you are not living fully awake. When we move through life awake, we are intentional with our choices.

I couldn’t resist sharing this song with you all again by Mumford & Sons called Awake My Soul. I’ve shared it before, but it’s so appropriate for today.

Awake My Soul! I don’t know about you but that’s the feeling I have on the inside when I make the decision to move forward and not stand still. I come to life!

    I love your word for the year, Eileen, and I love your list of things to finish this year. I have no doubt that with God by your side, you will keep moving forward and be able to accomplish all He has set before you.

    Many blessings, sweet friend!

    Got here via Sweet Blessings and love it. I’ve also joined Jon Acuff’s “finish year” community and chosen a word (well, two) for the year. Such great motivators. I can’t wait to see what God brings in the year 2012!
