new year, new focus

As I focus on a new year, I have discovered a way of resolution setting that works for me.  And works year through!  I love goals and I set them, but I'm not a big fan of resolutions.  I think that when you fail, you just give up.

So, for the past five years, I have picked a theme to focus on through the year.  So the past five years have been centered around:

Prayer (this was my theme for 2014)

And simply what I love about this idea is that it is SIMPLE!

In July, when the New Year's Resolutions are long forgotten, I can remind myself of the one word and re-center and it's just wonderful.  I am far from perfect, but I like to know that my years have produced lasting fruit and I'm humbled to say that each year has been blessed with fruit.  Thank you God!

So this year, I haven't decided on the one word quite yet, but I know I want to tackle a "First Things First" mentality...a time of focus on living what my priorities are.  I can waste my time on things that don't matter or I can re-center my time on what truly matters to me.

Here's to 2015.  Lord, I know you have amazing things in store.  May I have open eyes to see and I pray you use me for Your Glory!  Bless Your Holy, Precious, Perfect Name!
