Several years ago I read a couple compelling articles about instead of doing "resolutions" for the new year, to select ONE WORD that would the banner for the year. That year, the word was INTENTIONALLY. I decided that I wanted to live my life INTENTIONALLY in all areas of my life: faith, marriage, family, health. That year, my life was radically changed. God has always been real to me, but as I embraced and prayed over that ONE WORD asking the LORD to help me walk it out, crazy things began happening. God opened door, windows, paths ... deep healing started happening. No just of my body, but of my mind and my relationships. And just so we are all clear: we can just take Denice out of the equation. It was 99% GOD ... my 1% contribution was saying YES LORD and stepping out in faith. This idea of selecting ONE WORD to focus on throughout the year, did not originate with me. Did I see it on a social media post, a blog post, or other. Argh ... so frustrating when I cannot remember. So when all else fail, do an internet search. I was surprise to find out that there is a website called ONEWORD365.COM ... which is interesting and has some good information. This article is a great example of how to Find your word. Whatever I first read about it talked about the LORD and I really wrestled with words because I wanted that ONE WORD to be a focus of that year. Here is another article by Margaret Feinberg who writes bible studies and she has a free download about What's One Word. So check out the links above ... If you decide to accept the 2021 One Word Challenge, I would love ot know what your 2021 ONE WORD will be.
