Why choose a one word?
In 2003, after a tragic time in our family, and, after crying out to the Lord for months and months – He and His Holy Spirit dropped a word deep into my spirit and it took root and has been the lifeline of my existence.
HOPE. Now may the God of HOPE fill you with all Joy and Peace, in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15.13
Hope is life – and it has become my life word. Because it changes everything.
A New Word Each Year?
Been doing it for years and I like it. I admit some years it’s way more meaningful than others but it’s good to have a focus word. The words since Autumn 2017 have been especially meaningful. Reap (late 2017 through 2018). Favor (2019). Abundance (2020).
All three of those words bore much fruit.
Be steadfast, immoveable, always abounding in the Lord’s work. 1 Corinthians 15.58
Being steadfast and immoveable in speaking truth is my goal. I will never speak words that do not line up with The Word of God. And, if you think I am? Please call me out on it. I have a hard shell and I do not crack easily – we can have a good discussion!
