My One Word: Discipline
This year I chose the word DISCIPLINE.
I have learned a lot of very important things this past year. Things about my most important relationships, things about friendships, things about parenting, things about my food choices, things about myself, my personality, my relationship with the Lord, my use of my personal free time, my decisions about the future, and so on…
2013 was not an easy year. My word for 2013 was contentment and when I chose that I was thinking about learning to be content with where I was no matter what. What I found instead was God showing me how to affect necessary changes so that I could be content. I am so thankful to love and serve a God Who doesn’t want me to be content with less than what He has planned for me! 🙂
So much has changed over the last year. I’d like to say that I have learned so much that my word for 2014 could be REST, but the reality is that just because I *know* something doesn’t mean I have *applied* it.
So although I will never get this right 100% of the time, my focus for the coming year is going to be DISCIPLINE. By that I mean, that with each of the important areas of my life where God has shown me amazing and important new things in 2013, I am praying and asking Him to make me DISCIPLINED to do what I have learned.
I definitely need Him every single day to accomplish this and I am so thankful that I have His promise to be right by my side all year long! 🙂
