I don’t get caught in the trap of New Year’s Resolutions, which are usually doomed to fail.
I choose a word, phrase, character quality, song, or idea to meditate on, practice, engage, and dialogue with throughout the year.
What it is :
Resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering
steady – firm – stable – constant – staunch – immovable
1. Fixed or unchanging; steady. Focussed.
2. Firmly loyal or constant; unswerving.
Bible Verses :
What it is not :
Changing my mind
People pleasing (includes my children)
What it looks like in practice:
In a relationship : You are committed and dedicated to each other: your love is strong and it sustains your relationship through whatever life throws your way.
Learning to listen to God’s word
~ not needing to defend my parental position with my young teens
~ not feeling like I have to act/think in a particular way to gain someone else’s approval
– being aware of God’s always-love of me (makes me want to shout!!)
– knowing and knowing that my husband is on my side – yeah!
