It’s almost January 1st and that means it’s time to think about our words for 2014.
I’d love to hear what you’re thinking and praying your word might be.
Grace: unmerited favor. It’s not something I can earn. It’s something I accept and extend to myself and others. I want 2014 to be colored with a grace for my kids. I want them to know they are loved for who they are. It doesn’t mean we don’t have to work on character issues and other things, but the idea that they are accepted as they are.
I want to extend grace to myself. To let go of the expectations I have or feel placed on me that aren’t from God. If they aren’t His, I want to discard them.
I want to live a life of grace toward my husband. That he would experience a grace that allows him to be the man God has called him to be.
So what’s your word?
