Looking back at my one word for this year



It may be something that I forget about on a regular basis, but I did select a word to be my focus for this year. That word is “persist”. I talk about why I chose that word in this post. Persistence has been vital in this journey of increasing capacity. I need to remind myself of that more often.

In almost every post in which I’ve written about capacity blockers in my life, I have used the words “work in progress”. Being in that constant state of growth and change, not feeling like you’ve “made it” yet can be discouraging at times. I get so frustrated at my own choices and actions often. There are moments of feeling overwhelmed by my to do list or the responsibilities of the job at hand. It would be easy some days to claim defeat, give up and turn my back on what I feel God has called me to. Then that pesky little word comes up: persist. Keep going. One moment at time.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 NIV


I pray that you will feel encouraged to persist through whatever you are facing today.
