The transition from 2016 to 2017 has seemed longer than years in the past. I know that’s now how it really is, but it’s felt like a more genuine transition rather than a stop and start. I’ve done a lot of thinking about what I want this new year to embody for me. I’ve settled on Fearless Hope.
I want this year to be a year of growth and healing. A year when hope is fully claimed, and felt, where I can crush my anxiety, and chase fears. I want to boldly trust God with my life and my family, with all my hopes and dreams, and with my future.
This year feels different. Like everything is in stasis, and a huge shift is about to take place and shake everything around, but I hold on with excitement, knowing that this time, I’ll enjoy the ride. It isn’t as scary this time. It feels good. It feels like something big is about to happen. Like the changes aren’t going to be things I need to be afraid of.
Last year my trust was grown. This year… I guess we’ll have to wait and see. It’s a new chapter, maybe even a new book. But I choose to face it with a fearless hope for the future.
Do you have a word or phrase for 2017? I’d love to hear what it is. 🙂
