At the beginning of a New Year it is a good exercise to consider what verbs you want to most characterize your life.
What are some of yours?
Focus? Exercise? Believe? Love? Learn? Lose Wight? Lead? Change – like to a different job, different car, different house?
I like to begin each year by looking at a Psalm, a passage that will help me identify God-type verbs.
This Sunday at the Gathering Church I will teach from Psalm 37:1-8. It has some great verbs. But, it starts out with a negative one: ‘don’t fret.’
How did God know that for many of us our starting place is worry, stressing, or just plain frustration?
The alternative verbs are good, really good.
How can we choose good verbs?
