I read this post yesterday.
One word. One year.
Recently the struggle for me has been everything internal – emotions, thoughts, intentions, attitude. Toss anything in that list that has to do with what’s inside and I’ve probably been grappling with it for the past while.
Yesterday I read this:
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2
I want to be a new person. I want victory in my thoughts and the strength to stand up to the lies and pity parties that tempt me all day long. I don’t want to be free of struggle because most likely that would mean pride is winning and I am doing it on my own.
I want to surrender to the One who has taken it all.
So my one word for 2014 is actually two words. ‘Cause I can.
When does the change happen? When I let God. When will I be transformed? When I let God. When will the way I think be redeemed and healed? When I let God.
It’s gonna be ugly. But oh so freeing.
