For several years now as a new year approaches, I seek the Lord about what He specifically wants me to focus on that year. Last year the word was, "listen". I will not say I have become an expert listener, but praise God my ears are more open then before and my mouth is more shut. Through listening I have really been able to hear the hurts and hearts cry of some women around me. Listening has led to amazing things that I will save for another post, but now I want to share this years word.
In all honesty that would not be my choice of words, I would much rather have "spontaneous". The majority of my life has been one spontaneous thing after another, it is one of the masks I use to hide behind. This year God is asking me to take off the mask and be vulnerable as He shows me how to be purposeful.
Purposeful with Him.
Purposeful for Him.
Purposeful in my marriage.
Purposeful in my relationships.
What exactly does "purposeful" look like? I'm not sure, but I look forward to year of learning to purposeful with Him as my teacher.
How about you? Is there a specific area that the Lord is targeting this year? Please feel free to share in the comments below, or send me an email. I would love hear from you. :o)
Have a wonderful safe and purposeful new year!! :o)
