[own your life]

I am reading two books this month – Unstoppable by Christine Caine and Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson. I’ll talk more about Unstoppable in another post.

I started reading Own Your Life today. I knew a little about it by not a lot. This is the first book I’ve read by Sally so I wasn’t sure what to expect. 
My word for 2015 is intentional and what should I read today in the forward, not even into the chapters yet, but this…
“Am I being intentional? Am I making decisions based on biblical values? 

Am I choosing the pathways that will create deep, loving relationships and give value to the people personally connected to me? 

Am I willing to take risks of faith to invest my life in the things of eternity? 

Am I listening to the world or to the voice of God? Am I living with Christ and His life as the pattern for my own life? 

Do I see this day, these circumstances, as a place in which I can fulfill God’s will?”

Wow is all I can say. When God shows up He shows up! Can’t wait to dig into this book more. 


[one word]

In 2014 I chose one word for the One Word Challenge and it was love.  I picked it and didn’t think too much about it the rest of the year.  So for 2015 I have chosen the word “intentional.”  I want to be more intentional about my life as it relates to spiritual, physical, mental, emotional and financial.  My plan is to write about one of these areas each week as the year progresses with intentionality (if that’s a word).
