I’ve been struggling and contemplating for a bit, trying to figure out what my one word was going to be for 2016. The word that will guide me, influence me, steer me in the right direction to grow my faith, enhance my walk with the Lord, etc. I felt it needed to be an action word, not something like ‘hope’, but similar to my previous one, seek.
Tonight I went to the Saturday evening service at church because I work tomorrow. I am SO thankful I did, because the message series is Anything Is Possible (with God). WOW was it good! And it was just what I needed. And it was during the ride home while praying to God, out loud in my car (a favorite time to talk to Him) that I feel He gave me my word: Discipline
I need more time in the Word.
I need to read more not only God’s Word but other things.
I want to be the best I can be at work, the best aide they have.
I need to get and keep my finances in order, pay off some outstanding bills (which I’m actively doing).
I need to eat better, so that all the physical exercise from my job helps me to be more healthy and continue to improve my over all physical conditioning.
I want to be more organized with my time and life over all.
It all boils down to discipline. Hitting the nail day after day, as our pastor said. BAM, have my word for 2016 and it is a very good word.
