I’m not a big New Year’s Resolution kinda girl. Mostly because I’m just too lazy probably.🤣 It’s all good. At least I know not to set myself up for failure in advance! But I came across this whole Word of the Year thing this past January… “hmmm, now THIS could be something I COULD DO!” my inner self screamed. Uh huh, yeah, sure.
Y’all, I seriously thought this was going to be EASY PEASY! Back up the word of the year wagon train, ’cause kids it took me MONTHS, I MEAN MONTHS, to figure mine out! Maybe I was looking too hard, not hard enough, in the wrong places or I was just plain doing it wrong, but NO words I saw online, on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, or ANYWHERE felt right. I didn’t want to just CHOOSE a word and WORK WITH IT, I wanted MY WORD!
Eight-ish months after the New Year, I finally found MY WORD OF THE YEAR!
MY WORD WAS (IS) LIGHT! And I’m so happy I waited until the “right” word “spoke” to me, because y’all, my word came from Our One and only Heavenly Father. Of course it took me DAYS(TBH, it was OVER a week) of Him guiding me to verses in the Bible about light, over and over and over and… well, you get the point. If it wasn’t a verse in the bible, I would get His messages in other ways- the way a ray of light would catch my attention, a devotional about light, I could go on. I love hearing, seeing & feeling Him with me.
the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined.
How about you? Do y’all do the WORD of the Year thing? RESOLUTIONS? I’m just wondering NOW- is it gonna be all good if I don’t change MY word until, ooooh about August 2019? I mean, I SHOULD get a year out of it, right?
I’d LOVE to hear from you about YOUR word of the year or YOUR resolutions. What do YOU think of the word of the year idea? How has your word influenced your year?
Haven’t DONE a Word of the Year before? Are YOU looking for a little inspiration for YOUR OWN WORD OF THE YEAR? Here’s a handy little list of words I stumbled across this morning. (Hmmm, WHERE was this list when I needed it🤔) What do you think? https://pin.it/e3wupbqiaoijqv
