My One Word: intentional
As I continue to become the woman God desires me to be, I realize that He has called me to do many small things daily. These things do not take much time, sometimes no more than a minute or two but I find myself putting off those things and eventually forgetting about them or thinking it is too late and the purpose for the moment is gone.
I live far away from my family. I think about them continually but do not contact them as often as I know I should. I know God has prompted me many times to write a note or make a phone call to people I know need encouragement. There is no doubt he has urged me to fix a meal and make a visit but I put it off due to my “busy schedule”. This year I intend to do the small things, to make the phone calls, to write the notes, to support my loved ones in a deeper way than in the past.
I intend to pray longer and study more; to meet with friends to share what the Lord is doing in my life; to spend more time with people who have no one to spend time with them and get to know the people God has brought my way. I know God is calling me to a deeper more intimate relationship with Him and I intend to answer that call.
