In Others’ Words: Begin
Happy 2013, friends! I’ve missed our conversations.
We’re two days into the new year. I have plans for today … and for this year. Based on your Facebook statuses, your emails, your Instant Messages, y’all have plans too.
I’m wise enough to know my plans will be interrupted. Let’s see if I’m also wise enough to embrace the interruptions, adapt to them — rather than grumble about them.
I want to begin with enthusiasm — and I want to finish well.
I want to be bold — but not foolhardy.
I want to be wise — before, during, and after all the activity I’ve got planned.
Odds are, I’ll stumble and fall and skin my knees — and bruise my spirit. But through it all, I am boldly embracing my word for 2013: confidence.
What am I confident in?
I am confident in the love of family and friends. I am confident that I am pursuing the right dreams for me. I am confident that I am standing in the wide open spaces of God’s grace … and that nothing — absolutely nothing I say or do or don’t say or do — will cause God to point me to the Exit door.
In Your Words: What are you boldly beginning in 2013?
