In 2014, I chose the word brave as my watchword - I wanted that to be my heart's focus.
Last year, I made three new-year goals and ended up striving hard after just one: not being late :). (I'm not there, but am surely improving.)
And, in God's own never-late way, He waited until halfway through February this year to tilt my heart in another direction.
This year, I'm praying for softness.
I want to be soft of heart and soft with the broken and hurting.
I want to be softer of voice, and softer in spirit.
I want to let God soften me, instead of resisting the inconveniences and struggles He sends.
