In the year 2015, I will be brave. This is my word of the year, and it is extremely fitting for January at the very least. As a family we will be going through some changes and I want all of us to be brave as we head into them. (More on the changes soon!)
I’ve also already had to be a little brave. My dad was admitted to the hospital on New Year’s eve, and while they are unsure what exactly the problem is, his liver is not in good shape. I am far away and my sister and Aunt are doing all that needs to be done. I know he has to be a lot braver than me, but things have been spoken of that are pretty scary for all of us.
Sara Bareilles’ song has been on repeat in my mind for days as I think about what is coming. I have also searched for scriptures on being brave. My favorite is 1 Corinthians 16:13: “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
While I was searching for a printable, I found this post.
Perfect. The only way to be brave is to stand strong in Christ. I have many plans for the year, but one of the ones I want to happen more than anything is for me to grow closer to and depend more on God and to listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit, to live like Jesus.
Do you have your own focus word for the year?
