My Words for 2010

My words for this year are Clarity & Obedience. I pray that I will see myself as I really am; at least as much as God knows I can stand up under at one time. I don't want to be self-delusional. In the past I've had a bad habit of shifting blame instead of confessing my own sins. I'm willing to be hurt and humbled now by being honest about my less-than-perfect self.

With clarity, hopefully, comes obedience. As God shows me my heart, I want to be obedient to whatever He has for me. I pray for the grace to be obedient and to see myself as I really am. I know he'll be gentle with me. I pray that I'll turn around and show gentleness and kindness to those in my own household. I know we'll all be happier. Kindness begets kindness.

Clarity and obedience. Such good words - both others centered instead of self centered.
