2016 is only a few days from being over; the New Year is on the horizon.
Since 2009, instead of choosing a New Year’s resolution, I’ve been choosing One Word to live by for 365 days. This year, my One Word is:
Onward! The road may be difficult, but I refuse to quit or stop; onward I go! Onward to new and better things. Onward to climbing the difficult mountains and feeling victorious afterwards. Onward to crossing the roughest of seas and knowing I accomplished something. Onward into the night to seek the morning. Onward to get a new understanding on God’s love for me. Onward to fight battles rather than stand by and watch. Adventure is waiting, onward I go!
Sometimes there are road blocks and stumbling blocks, but that shouldn’t stop me from continuing onward! They may slow me down a little, but I won’t stop, and after moving past the barriers, I will have grown and learned from the difficult path.
2016 was a year of striving for me, but in 2017, I’m going onward! Adventure ho!
