The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Lori – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Serenity
What word did you choose and why?
I chose the word Serenity. God calls us to be calm, untroubled, and peaceful. No matter what comes my way, I aim to stop worrying about it and accept the Lord’s Peace. I know that I am who He says I am, and nothing that comes my way in this life can change that.
I don’t want to make a resolution, I want to create actual change in my life, so this year I am focusing on the word Serenity. I’ve really taken the Serenity Prayer to heart, and I want to focus on living that truth out in my daily life. I am a worrier by nature, but I no longer want to lose my Peace, because that Peace comes from the Lord. He tells us that we should be calm, untroubled, and peaceful. So I want to put those things into practice.
What is something you hope you accomplish by the end of the year?
By the end of this year I hope that I’ve really allowed serenity and the Serenity Prayer to sink into every aspect of my life. I hope that I’ve let the worrying go, and that I’ve really embodied the belief that I am who He says I am.
