Last year I took the plunge and decided to participate in OneWord365. It really helped me to look at decisions I was making through the lens of the word that I chose. I took risks in 2012 that were out of character and was stretched by that experience.

This year the word that keeps coming to my heart and mind is “Anticipate”.

Anticipate that God is going to do immeasurably more than I can imagine in my life. Anticipate that I will walk through life with purpose and passion. Anticipate that great things are ahead! Anticipate new friendships, new experiences, new challenges, new opportunities. Anticipate GREAT!

I need to challenge myself in this area. Even with my oh so sunny disposition, I tend to look for what can go wrong. I am a problem solver…which really means, I LOOK for problems to arise and plan ahead accordingly. (HA!)

My desire is to have a more positive outlook on life. To stop thinking that the worst is about to happen and to shut off the negative voices and replace them with life giving words and promises of God. That He has a plan to prosper me and not harm me, that no plan of His can be thwarted, that though the vision may seem slow in coming to fruition God has not forgotten me. I am taking the next 365 to be on the lookout for good in my life and anticipating the best in myself and in others.

How are you going to look at the next 365 in your life?
