My Word For 2018 - PEACE

I suppose that by putting my word of the year out there for the world to see it's not surprising that it was already put to the test. The word I'm choosing this year is Peace. Kind of funny, right? I've always heard that if you want to grow in an area of your life, you should pray about it because God will grow you in it by testing you. lol

Not long after I shared my word, my day got not so peaceful.

What I shared on Instagram is:

"I've chosen something that seems to allude me on a regular basis because I'm so high strung and critical. We'll see if I can figure out how to find this life long elusive word and fit it into every area of my life. What's yours?"

For me though, I want peace across all areas of my life. I seriously stress about everything and have very little peace. Of course that also means I have very little joy. So, I'm hoping one thing leads to another.

I want peace in my personal life with my family, peace with work, peace with blogging, peace with expectations I have of others outside of our home. I think that's been the biggest catalyst for this word. I have so little peace about what others are or aren't doing I make myself, and then others, insane. And I actually hate it.

I don't know if it's a word I'll find success with this year, but I sure hope so. I can imagine what the change would be like, but if getting to the finish line means going through what I did today and tonight, it's going to be the longest year yet.

Oh I hope you find it! The chaos of the country right now certainly doesn't help, but you do deserve joy. I hope by writing about peace and resolving to work at it, you have breathed it to life!

I think aiming peace with oneself is the best on the list. Everyone only has so much time, energy and resources and that's all there is to spend. Kind of like a bank account. You can only write so many checks.

I completely understand where you're coming from in wanting Peace. I feel like there's no peace in my home on a daily basis until the kids are asleep. But even then I don't know if I feel peace in my heart. Instead I worry over what I've done and said that day that didn't allow me peace or grace from Heavenly Father.
The world is in an uproar about everything and I think if we could just find a little more peace in our own lives and homes, we would see such a difference.

I love your word, I truly hope that you can have more of it. Peace for me lately has only come when I am traveling, so I plan to do more of that, for sanity reasons ;)
