I want genuine to mark my year this year. This word has been on my heart this last month. I feel like this past month God keeps showing me time after time where I am am lacking genuineness. I pursue people and conversations out of obligation, but not a true heart to love them and know them more.
I'm ready to dive into this. I know I'll fail over and over, but I also know God has put this word on my heart for a reason. I want to really be present when I talk to people. I want to show a real interest in who they are and where they came from. I want to be excited when I see people. I want to love them with a real genuine love and not an obligation.
Luckily God has given me some pretty sweet role models in this area. I can think of two friends in particular who rock in this area. Every time I hang out with them, see them or just give them a hug, I know they are different. This word radiates from their life.
So here goes....
