Let's Look at 2017 Shall We?


Link up at www.twowritingteachers.wordpress.com.  We are so grateful for this community. 

Fearless.  My One Word for 2017.    Let's try this with some free verse-ish writing, shall we?

Isaiah 41:10:  "Do Not be afraid, for I am with you.  Do not be dismayed, I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  I will help you.  I will uphold you with my victorious right hand."
Fearless in Faith.
More learning to be had here.  
Less fear in trying to write and share my learning.  
Fearless in Friendships.
Uphold the ones that are critical.
Fearless in love.
It's for All People.
(That phrase, "all people" is in Luke chapter 2.  It's really been on my heart since Christmas.)

2 Timothy 1:7:  "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline."

Fearless in Running.
Find that girl and get her back.  

Fearless in fitness.
Cliche--I know.
But I've lost that too.  
I boldly need to reclaim that on all fronts.  

Joshua 1:9:  I command you-Be strong and courageous!  Do not be afraid or discouraged.  For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

Fearless in ambition.
I'm not afraid anymore.
Fearless in the work.

Fearless in the journey.
I don't know where it's going to take me.
But I know Who is going with me. 

And I'm going fearlessly.

Some music to get us started:



  1. Fearless, bold, and unencumbered--you're ready for 2017, but is it ready for you?

  2. Fearless. Go girl! This word will take you beyond what you think you are ready for.

  3. What a great word...and it is all anchored in scripture! Fearless in the journey - that is the key, isn't it? 2017, here she comes.

  4. I love "fearless" and you already have totally embraced it! Bring on 2017!
