2018 was a year full of building. I got my degree, put together a youth worship band at my church, my husband and I celebrated our first year of marriage, we started a Bible study out of our home, and spent a month serving as missionaries in Puerto Rico! God has blessed me so richly, but in the midst of that process I became obsessed with the progress, pushed myself harder, and became exhausted. As I learned and grew throughout the year, I knew this impossible pace was not what God had for me.
For 2019 I want to be focused with direction. My ambition is to become a woman who listens to God to see what things are important and to be grounded in what truly matters. I will not be afraid of no, not be scared to rest, and not back down from weakness. Because when we admit we are weak, He shows us He is strong. I will pause and take stock, not getting so caught up in accomplishments that I forget to breathe, that I forget what really matters.
The triangle, for me, represents this focus and direction. Always up, reminding me what matters, yet still with a base to go back to. A place to reflect. 2019 will be purpose-filled, with less of the junk that weighs us all down. 2019 will be balanced.
