My words for 2022 are surrender and rest. I choose words and verses for the New Year because I have continuously failed at New Year’s resolutions. I want to grow closer to God and in doing so the rest will fall into place. My verse for surrender is John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Simply put, more of Jesus, less of Tara. My other word is rest and the verse I chose is from Matthew 11:28, ” Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” I want to do a better job of resting at the feet of Jesus instead of constantly finding something to keep me busy. See, I struggle with finding quite time with Jesus. I allow myself to be distracted by my phone and the notification ding of my watch. In 2022, I am doing a better job of having purposeful time with Jesus and finding rest at His feet. I want to learn to be completely dependent on Jesus. This is hard for this control freak personality, but I want more Jesus and less me.
What are your words/ scripture for 2022? I am ready to press in this year.
