It’s a new year. A fresh start.
When I was thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in 2017 I decided that instead of creating a handful of resolutions that I probably wouldn’t stick with, I was going to choose a word for the year instead. I had never done this before so I didn’t really have any rules to follow, I just wanted to find a word that would act as a guide through the adventures of the new year.
I spent some time thinking and writing out ideas. I ask God for wisdom and clarity because I wanted it to actually mean something. Then, as the ball began to drop on 2016 I simply made a decision.
My word for this year is new. If you have been reading my blog for very long you know 2016 was a little rough. My life was flipped upside down as I was forced to pick up the shattered pieces and figure out how to move forward. I needed to create a new life. A new identity. A new way of thinking about myself, God, and those around me. I needed to be new.
So, as I step into 2017 I am choosing to let new be my motto. I’m not sure where it will lead me or the crazy awesome paths it will take me, but I’m ready. Bring it on 2017!
Today’s track is all about dreaming of something new. As you listen to it spend some time thinking about the year ahead of you. What do you want to see happen? What do you want to change? To make better? Take some time to write it down as we all begin the journey of what 2017 has to offer. Enjoy…
