2013: The word is STRONGER.
Stronger physically – I want to remember to take my meds and be diligent about keeping my joints strong and healthy.
Stronger spiritually – I want to be in the Word everyday and I want to keep those truths with me. I want to be craving the Word of God. Cait gave me an awesome link about choosing a Scripture reading plan based on a theme or concept. I can’t wait to give it a try.
Stronger relationships – I want to be a stronger friend, stronger sister, stronger daughter, stronger teacher, stronger child of God.
Stronger me – I want to be a more confident, more determined Kim. A Kim who takes opportunities, seeks adventures, trusts God’s plan for her, shares her faith, and loves better and stronger.
Stronger mentally and emotionally – I want to be always grateful that God is with me, even when it’s tough, even when I don’t understand why things appear dark. My prayer is that I will always see the Light, and if I get scared, know that the Light IS there, even if I can’t see it. To always believe that He, who began a good work in me, will never abandon His project. To only fill my mind with good things.
Stronger teacher – I want to try new things and not stick to status quo. I want my students to look up to me and trust me with their tough questions.
Stronger thank-er – I want to be SO grateful. Grateful for health and family and friends, for music and beautiful places, for amazing people and strong relationships, for a place to live and food to eat, for a job that allows me to be creative and quirky, for the opportunity to travel and in particular, Air Canada, who is flying me to Australia for free, for laughter, tears and all the inbetweens, for new starts and hopes despite odds and a car that just keeps going.
I declare that this year I will be STRONGER.
