My One Word: Resolute
I believe that the LORD would have me become more determined to overcome hardship, illness, obesity, stress and pain. The key is my mind. I believe He is wanting to remind me that in His strength and in reliance on Him, my mind can be transformed into a fortress that stands against emotional storms rather than being a vessel tossed around at their mercy. I have been acquainted with depressive and suicidal thoughts throughout 2014. I am determined to take my emotions and make them obedient to Christ so that my behaviours, including what I say and even the tone I use will have steely determination but be lavishly covered with grace.
