I've never really chosen a word for the year and I'm not much for resolutions. But this year I felt like God was nudging me toward some kind of focus. And the words that kept coming back to me were "seek depth". Depth in my faith, depth in my relationships, in my marriage, in my prayer life, in all the things I love. I am one who gets excited about new things, new projects, new people, new ideas... I dip my toes into 518 different pools at any given time. Sometimes I pursue so many little things that interest me, I end up never really enjoying any of them fully. I have a million tiny ideas floating around in my mind and just end up a little scattered and disjointed.
I realize it's March and 2014 started months ago. But that's the way it goes with me.
I did actually start praying through these words from the beginning, feeling God pulling me in closer. And it isn't all spiritual - I feel like I want to be better at the things I love - the things I do for my business and the hobbies that bring me joy - like photography and food and sewing and writing.
Did you choose a word or phrase for the year? Is there something you want to delve more deeply into? I'd love to hear about it!
