GRIT in 2018

as a family we do this thing.  i used to post about it, joined a tribe, but that feels like ages ago now. back when life felt simpler, not less hectic, just easier. life is now just as hectic but our girls are older, our life is more focused, my Mister works less hours, and we are pulling in. tightening the reigns on what we let consume our days, our thoughts, our lives.

this year i am rejoining the #oneword365 tribe and sharing our one word for 2018 with you, my readers who’ve held on throughout my silence of late.

i like that…FIRMNESS OF CHARACTER, INDOMITABLE SPIRIT, PLUCK.

especially the INDOMITABLE SPIRIT part. it gives me the sense of a person who isn’t easily swayed, firm. it reminds me of the ARMOR I wear (Ephesians 6:10-17) specifically this part:

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. ” Eph. 6:14-15

…with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

you see, i want to be a woman who sows in peace, reaps in peace, dwells in peace! a woman who has an INDOMITABLE SPIRIT! i’m praying that over my 4 this year. that we would dwell, walk, sow, live, BE IN PEACE…WITH  GRIT!

 

Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.  This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.  For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.  And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:13-18
