In the past, I have set goals for the upcoming year and laid them all out nicely. Usually, if I made progress, it was early on, before I forgot about the goals (I’m just being honest here). I haven’t done a good job of keeping them at the forefront. 2014 is going to be a little different.
As I’ve started thinking about the upcoming year, I’ve really felt lead to choose a word instead of making a list of check-off items. Go. In so many senses of the word, go. God has placed on my heart that it is time to go: to go back to our hometown; to go from our church where we have grown and learned so much; to go instead of always being a sender; I mean, I’ve even felt called to go running.
I teetered back and forth between go and no. As I was working my way through which to make my focus, Mr. Gray asked the question, “Why go instead of no? It seems either would be a good fit for you.” The fact is, no is not always something that comes easy to me, but it comes a lot easier than going. Being a go-er rather than a sender is something I feel God preparing me for. It is a much larger step out of my comfort zone, but it is something that seems to be a recurring theme.
