About the same time last year, I posted my word of the year (it was pro-active.)
The year went well with that as my “focus” word or the word that I wanted to use to remind myself what my purpose was and what I was trying to accomplish for the year, up until I hurt my knee in June. That incident threw my whole world out of control.
And I’m all about control.
This year I’m changing my focus seemingly completely. I prayed about my “purpose word” for this year and one word seemed to stick out of all the rest that were swimming around in my head.
I wanted to take the control out of the word for this year. I want it to be about what the Lord wants for me.
I want it to be what the Lord has blessed me with and how I can use those blessings, aka gifts, to glorify him and to serve him better.
I also want to bless others with gifts. Not just the physical kind, but the “presence” kind.
My time is very valuable to me. I want to be intentional about giving it as a gift, even when I don’t think I can squeeze it into my busy schedule.
I hope to blog about my giving. It’s all about being blessed and being able to bless others.
Have you picked a verse or word of the year?
What do you want to accomplish next year? What kind of purpose do you feel compelled or lead to do for the year? Can you sum it up in one word?
I hope you try to pick one word too and please, feel free to share it with me!
