2017 Word of the Year
For the past few years instead of making resolutions I have chosen a Bible verse and word to focus on for the year.
Last year was sort of a transition year for me. It was difficult to make specific goals when I didn’t feel I had much of a direction. I chose the word “forward.” My goal was to focus on the future and concentrate on leaving the pain behind, and that is exactly what I did.
Fast forward one year.
God has provided much needed spiritual healing in my life over the past 12 months. In addition, He has ignited a passion in me to minister to people through this blog. Finding Time To Fly has grown much faster than anticipated over the past year. It has been a blessing to me to hear from readers who have been positively impacted by a Bible verse, parenting tip, simple meal planning strategy, or an easy recipe I shared. There is no greater feeling than to help someone else.
After much prayer, reading and listening, God has given me a word for this year, or rather 2 words.

To achieve spiritual goals, physical goals, and business goals, I will need to be intentional in order to reach them. I will strive to do something specific each day and be intentional about getting closer to achieving my goals.
For a little extra motivation, here are some great quotes about how to be intentional:
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” ~ LeCrae
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” ~ Mark Twain
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” ~Thomas Edison
“There is no shortcut to anyplace worth going.” ~ Beverly Sills
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.” – Nolan Bushnell
“To climb steep hills requires slow pace at first.” – William Shakespeare
Bible Verse of the Year
Nothing motivates me more than the Word of God. These verses from 1 Timothy 4:15-16 speak perfectly about how to be intentional.
As reminders and to keep myself focused, I created some prints to frame and display around my home and in my office. Each print is 8″x8″ centered on a horizontal 8.5″x11 size paper. They can be trimmed to fit an 8″x8″ frame or display as-is on letter size paper.
Decide now to be intentional.
Make a decision and take an action every day toward achieving your goals.
