2013 is here! There’s something about a new year that gets me all fired up to change for the better. But that feeling soon evaporates if I don’t have the right motivation. Anybody know what I mean?
So, this year I decided to pick out One Word that will motivate me. I was reading through the book of Galatians when I came across this verse:
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
The words echoed in my head - Do not give up… in other words, Persevere… And that’s how I came up with my word for 2013!
2012 was a year of getting my priorities in order. I learnt a lot of hard lessons and improved a bit in these areas:
- Being consistent in studying the Bible
- Respecting & serving my husband
- Training my kids – spiritually & intellectually
So, this year I decided to apply the word “Persevere” to 3 other areas of my life that need improvement. This year, I will intentionally persevere in:
- Building up my prayer life.
- Working towards a healthy lifestyle.
- Organizing my home.
Last year I made a list of things I was looking forward to, and they all happened . I’ll be following the same pattern to accomplish my goals this year as well. Stay tuned to read more about it in the coming weeks.
Have A Blessed 2013!
