Taking the time to reflect on the past year in hopes of carving out a better future has the ability to halt you in your tracks. Coming face to face with the unpleasant gaps in your character and personality is not always a pretty picture. So, why you might ask, did we encourage you to take inventory on where youve been and the person you currently are? Quite simply, it begins the process towards change by identifying your starting point.Фундамент под печь
Today we turn our attention to a different picture. This is a picture that propels you forward. Rather than attempting to avoid the person you were or stopping a negative behavior, we want you to begin painting a picture of the person you want to become. This image must go deeper than outward appearances by focusing on the changes that need to take place deep inside your soul.
FOR THOSE THAT HAVE ALREADY PICKED THEIR WORD FOR 2010
This project is not about quick-fixes or putting a band-aid on a bad behavior. It is intended to produce long-term results. We want you to have expectations that your one word will become embedded in your character and begin to flow out of you naturally. For this to take place, it requires putting yourself in a position where God can transform you. People do not grow in the image of Christ by accident or osmosis. When you take the time and intention to focus on your word, change begins to seep into your character.
Our last post posed a question regarding the apprehension that we all feel when faced with change. Somehow in the midst of that fear there is a part of hope and excitement that resides within us. Wed love to hear your response to the following question: What excites you the most about the road ahead of you with your One Word?
