Last week, with fear and trembling, I shared my One Word for 2013 – Fearless.
Ironic, I know. But there are so many important, relevant, good words! What if I got it wrong? I really prayed about strong, brave, secure, equipped, enough… What if it feels to God like I’ve thrown down the gauntlet (where did that phrase come from?) and says “It’s on!” leading me into situations to stretch me uncomfortably? What if this year just shows how fearless I’m not?
And then I remembered the two words fear always asks: “What if…” And I said “So what.”
I hope you’ll enter into this year-long adventure too.
I’ve loved hearing from you through email, text, and FB and I hope more of you will share your words here. Some of your OneWords I’ve heard so far are Margin, Relinquish, Trust, Live, Content, Enjoy…
So here’s what I’m thinking…We’re going to rename “Spirit Stretch Fridays” (You may not have even known that was a thing. I’ve kind of dropped the ball).
From now on it’s gonna be Fearless Fridays. I’ll be posting on different aspects of Fear because I think it’s a pretty universal challenge and is related to so many other challenges. AND, I’m going to be asking some of you to send me guest posts about your experiences with your One Word.
Here’s my thought for the day around “Fearless”.
Soooo…here we go!
