I sit staring at my computer screen.
I have been here before: the first week in January and a New Year.
Like every New Year, I am excited to create positive energy in my life. Climb new mountains. Write more, blog more. Reach more people for Christ through my writing.
I fear failure though.
I fear my words will not impart real hope and real love to those who read them. Can you relate?
It is hard to write in five minutes about the word “motivate.”
How can I motivate myself this year; to keep trying; to keep going.
Life gets in the way. Fear launches grenades. Failure looms. Courage is scarce.
I am praying for a word; looking at resolutions.
I feel like a failure at times. Last year, I did not loose the weight. I didn’t finish the book. I failed to be a better mother and wife.
May my verse this year be:
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brothers (and sisters), be steadfast, immovable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord,
knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
