Gale-force gusts on my face.
I push through the pounding air.
Tempest blasts at my back.
I struggle with the next step.
A typhoon of contradiction all around me.
But this is how I get anywhere.
Energize me, breezy Friend.
Blow away the dust in my tired eyes.
Carry me over the mountain in my way.
Your airy kindness lifts me up
and puts me right where I belong.
So I will trust the Wind.
Nothing is going to stop you.
So get up even when you don’t feel like it.
Push yourself harder than ever before.
You can’t look at what happened yesterday, last week, or last year.
Keep your eyes glued to the road ahead.
Performance is never as important as dedication.
It doesn’t matter if you come in last place, just finish the race.
Noone can put limits on you.
So don’t listen to the negative talk (from others or yourself).
Everything you need to keep going is inside of you.
Give yourself the benefit of the doubt.
You were created to dream, explore, pursue, create, to RUN FREE!
What are you waiting for?
Happy New Year!
Have you decided on your word for the year? One word to focus on for personal growth and spiritual focus? Well, I have!
My word for 2016 is “Steadfast”. God revealed to me last month that I’m going to need to dig in dipper with Him because of circumstances in my life that want to knock me off course. He showed me that in order to stand firm when life throws crazy interruptions my way, I have to be confident in my foundation.
So, this year I’m going to plant myself firmly on the word of God like never before. I’m going to be immovable and loyal in my commitment to put God above everything else. I’m going to stay true to what I know, to what I’ve always known: GOD IS GOOD.
Despite the scary outlook or negative news, GOD IS GOOD. Despite the bad report or unhealthy habit, GOD IS GOOD. Despite the betrayal, the disloyalty, the hopelessness, GOD IS GOOD.
“People with their minds set on you,
you keep completely whole,
Steady on their feet,
because they keep at it and don’t quit.”
Isaiah 26:3 (MSG)
