We are 8 days (almost 9) into 2013 & there are a few things that I can't get off my mind. I have thought and prayed a lot about what God would have for me this year. Before the end of 2012 I thought about my year & what was ahead in 2013. Sometimes it seems that my life is just a normal cycle being a stay at home mom.
The radio station I listen to gave a challenge. To take some time & pray about what one word God would have your 2013 represent. I did that. The word I feel that God wants my 2013 to represent is HELPFUL.
At first, I thought maybe that was an odd word. I wondered if that could really be what I should focus on. However, the more I prayed about it, the more God continues to bring it to me.
So, I bring it to you. I ask you to hold me accountable to this. Here are the things I feel that God is leading me to with this...
be HELPFUL...to me. I need to first help myself in order to be whole to help others. I need to help myself with my health(in all ways-spiritual, physical & emotional), with my organization and with my discipline.
be HELPFUL...to others. I want to help others in so many ways. Starting with my husband & son and then spilling out to all others. Encouragement, disciplining, etc... Any way that I can.
So....I ask you...how are you doing? I seriously and going to make this year count. I want to make my year Helpful. Especially by encouraging. Hold me to it!
Love to you all!!!!!
