Last year was the first time I had heard about choosing a word for the year. If you have never done that, basically it is one word that expresses your focus for the upcoming year. Last year my word was “love”. I wanted to approach every situation, every person, and every opportunity through the lens of the unconditional love of Jesus. Now, I wasn’t always successful, but it is what drove every decision I made.
This year, after much prayer, I chose the word “grow”. Another action word because I believe in putting God’s Words into action. My plan is to grow this year. Grow in my knowledge of the Bible, grow closer to the Lord, grow in my belief, and grow in appreciation. Basically, grow spiritually in any way I can.
I would love to know if you chose a word! If so, comment below and tell me what it is.
