Have you ever said this? Anyone who knows me well also knows that I like closure. Let me rephrase, I LOVE closure. There’s nothing much I like better than when I am done with a project. In fact, sometimes I rush through the details just to get done!
Just ask my Dad, who as my 10th grade geometry teacher, told my mom, “if she would just slow down and not be in such a hurry to get done with her tests she would get better grades”.
2012 is coming to a close. Hooray! I think the reason I like the end so much is because of all the great things that come along with new beginnings. So I am now anxiously winding down 2012 and looking forward to what 2013 will bring, and I’m in a hurry to get there!
2012 has been a year of “resting in God”… learning to “be still”… I am starting to really accept who God has designed me to be. So as the year comes to a close I am stepping out and claiming “I’m DONE!” That means I will no longer be looking for approval or validation outside of God to prove I am valuable or that my ideas matter. I have had enough of chasing after the dreams of others because I see them as more influential, important and valuable.
2013 will be a year of walking in JOY. I’m not saying I will always FEEL joyful, what I mean is I am committed to a single focus, on my God and staying in line with his will.
I’m done giving up any more of my life to what anyone else thinks I should do or be. God is in charge of my life… if that’s a problem, you’ll have to take it up with him. 🙂
