AIM: ALIGNED with God’s purpose; INTENTIONAL with my life pursuits; propelled by forward MOVEMENT.
Hello again! Took a little hiatis from blogging and ready for a new year, a new focus, and a fresh perspective on life! So I thought I’d start with sharing what’s on my heart for this year. In order to get where we want to be, we sometimes have to take a look back to see where we’ve been.
My word for the year is AIM! Been doing this word thing for a few years now, not sure when it became “the thing”. I was pondering over where I wanted to go this year, with God, with friendships, with family, with life pursuits, etc. I realized that I had spent the past year or two just sort of meandering through life as it came — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s just that I didn’t feel as though I had really been as intentional as I could be about what I’m doing, who I’m becoming, and where I’m going. As I pondered these thoughts, I was led to the word AIM. And then (because I am a true word nerd) I had to come up with an acrostic to make a real statement! So here it is …
ALIGNED with God’s purpose; INTENTIONAL with my life pursuits; propelled by forward MOVEMENT.
AIM. “I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. …” (Phil. 3:13-16, MSG)
I’ve got my eye on the goal and God is beckoning me onward. As women, I want us to spur each other on toward the things that He wants us to be about. I hope you’ll join me every week. Ready — Aim — Fire!
