So I have chosen a word for the year 2011, to guide me to becoming a better person, and it is "COMPASSION." I want to have compassion as Jesus did, and I want to help others that are in need. I want to give my heart and soul to the Lord and know that He will provide for me. I want to not worry about me anymore, know that I am taken care of by the Lord, and help others without thoughts that it will hurt me.
"He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again."
*I know that as long as I am doing the Lord's will, He will take care of me financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally.*
2 Corinthians 9:6
"But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully."
*I know that if I have compassion in my heart and use it for the Lord's will, he will return all that I have used to me.*
This leads me to my phrase for the year, "I will reap what I sow." I can use this phrase in every aspect of my life. If I workout, I will lose weight and tone up. If I work, I will be paid. If I give unto the Lord, he will give me everything back. I know that through the Lord all things are possible, and I have faith that this will be my year for success in every area of my life.
