“Believe”… this has become my montra.

We’re on day 5 of the New Year.

There are a lot of things I’m choosing to “Believe” for this year!

I believe I will get out of school.

I believe I will get out of debt.

I believe even if I remain single this year, that God is still preparing that person for me.

I believe and will continue to believe that everything is in his timing.

I believe that this will be a year to step out of complacency.

I believe the tough times that might come in 2011 will make the great times so much sweeter.

I believe that I will continue to grow in the knowledge of who I am in Christ.

I believe it’s about quality and not quantity, and that God will continue to nurture the friendships in my life.

I believe that family is the most important thing, and pray that I will be in the moment with them every second I am blessed to be with them.

I believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that I'll work on not comparing myself to others.

I believe I have to weigh my wants versus my needs when I get that “I want, I want, I want” mentality.

I believe that God knows every reason for every season.

I believe, I believe, I believe.

The list could really go on and on. Frankly, it’s easy to say we believe, but putting our belief into action is a whole other thing.

So what are you believing for this year?

John 6:47—Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.

Great, great post. There are all of these studies that have been done recently that talk about how negative thoughts creative little impressions on the brain and how positive thinking has a lot of "power", which I think is important and true. But I also subscribe to the belief in the One who loves you and me so. Can't wait to see what wonderful things you experience this year!

Great post for the new year! We all have so much to believe in! I can totally relate to you on the singleness stuff and believing in God's timing. Happy 2011!

Love this post! Believe is my favorite word ... I have a ton of necklaces, bracelets and just things around my room that say it! :-)

I always think of The Polar Express movie when I hear Believe. It could stand for so many things that it is a personal favorite. Believing is everything!

A beautiful post and a beautiful list of things to believe for, all within your reach!

This year I am believing that I will grow in the knowledge of God, my husband will find full-time work, our financial situation will take a turn for the better, I will come to fully understand the love of God for me...the list goes on. Those are a few.

I love your list! Rather than making resolutions and changing things, you're concentrating on what you know and giving faith to where it belongs. I think you're going to have a great year!
