Wow. 2013 is coming to an end. Time has flown by! With the end of the year, I begin to start thinking of what I want to focus on in the new year. Most of you have heard of Ali Edwards 'One Little Word' before, right? You pick a word and truly focus on it for the next 365 days. You live it. You meditate on it. You see where your word takes you.
This past year I chose the word 'anchor' to focus on. You can read about why I chose anchor, here. This past year I truly believe I embraced my word and lived it out. Heck, I even got it tattooed on my ankle. I am a changed person after a year-long concentration of anchoring myself.
My word for 2012 was downsize - as in lose weight and clear the clutter from my life. That year, I lost 20 pounds through sweat and less cookies. ;)
This year's word is one that chose me. My word has been popping up in various ways in my life over the last couple of weeks. In fact, I *thought* I knew what word I was going to choose but it just didn't sit right with me. My new word? I am not sure where it is going to lead me, but I know this is the right word for me.
My word for 2014 is…...
6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
Yes, in 2014 I want to let my light shine.
So, whats your word for 2014? How did you pick your word?
