My Word of 2017: Preparation

by - 5:30 AM

Every new year at church we choose a word for the year ahead. 

Last year I choose the word "Purpose" which allowed me to question a lot of relationships, anxieties, and decisions I've made. Focusing on purpose essentially was like putting a giant mirror up to my life, piece by piece, and asking "what is the purpose of _______?" 

This year, I chose a word that is a direct reflection of the stage of life I am in. 

With a current job change, being half way done my Masters, and getting ready to move into the city, the word "Preparation" seemed fitting. 

This year, no matter the anxieties or challenges that come my way, I am choosing to see them as growing opportunities. Like a farmer labouring in the field, planting seed in the ground, so is my 2017. 

I will strategically sow spiritually, emotionally, relationally and physically so that in 2018, I can look back on this year and see the growth. 

I don't know what this year has for me, 

but I know Who will guide me through it all.
