My One Word: Free
I originally picked the word Resolve, but as I thought and prayed about that word I realized that it played to my deeply ingrained performance mentality and it was focused on me being more resolved vs letting God do a work in me. That’s when the word Free came to me. I desire to be free from people pleasing, free from a performance mentality, free from the lies I’ve believed, free to be who He created me to be and free to be ok with being on the journey vs already reaching the end goal. Galatians 5:1,13 is my key verse. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery…You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
