I’m joining in with Alece’s ONE WORD challenge for the new year. Instead of picking a New Years Resolution (which I never do anyways), I thought I should focus on ONE WORD.
That’s my one word this year. It’s a significant word to me in many ways, and its a word that God has been pressing on me for some time. It’s also the entire mission statement of my non-profit, Shine International, in one concept:
To Shine. To Be The Light.
But the truth is I don’t always represent myself so well. I don’t always feel liking shining. I don’t always feel like being positive. I don’t always feel like living out my mission.
And it’s in these moments when I have to dig deeper and pull in tighter to HIM.
Because the truth is I can’t do it on my own, but I know the closer I am to HIS radiance, the brighter it will SHINE out through me… and that’s what I need to aim for.
I want to Be the Light. I want to SHINE brighter this year.
2011. I’m gonna get my SHINE on!
