My One Word: Release
2013 is going to be a year of many changes for me. I will be graduating from high school, moving out, and attending my first semester of college. As an easily stressed perfectionist, people pleaser, and over-giving person, I need to remember to take a moment and RELEASE my fears, worries, thoughts, and other emotions to God, because without handing over and giving my life, future, and emotions to God, I will end up tired and weary.
“Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:30
Here’s to a year of peace, perspective, and pausing that comes only through releasing to God my everything.
