I had decided on that word, literally, at first.
I wanted to remind myself constantly that great things were on the horizon, that life is always great no matter what happens, and that great is the Lord's love and faithfulness. A decent word, sure enough.
But over the last week, a different word has continually flashed across my mind's eye, and I think it is a propos for the circumstances that I currently face. Everything in me wants to go into panic mode and cut and run and do what I need to do to survive, but I cannot do it. I cannot hide or live some sort of pretend existence. I have to face that which wants to destroy me, and conquer it.
At the same time, my dreams will remain just that. Dreams. Unless I put one foot in front of the other and DO the stuff I am hesitant to do, for fear of what other's might think, or rejection, or failure. I can not afford to sit paralyzed because I am afraid to fail. And I am NOT going to be afraid to try. I'm done with such foolishness. And so...
My one little word for 2010 is FEARLESS.
