What is your word for 2019?
If you had to pick one word that describes how you want your story to read for 2019, what would it be? For the last few years, I've thought hard about what my word will be for the New Year. What do I want my story to be this coming year? What goals or new habits do I want to reinstate or establish? I absolutely want the story to be awesome for 2019! I have a few words I'm mulling over in my head but have not settled on "the word" yet.
Last year, my word was "Promise". I tried to keep up with looking up one of God's promises every day. I didn't keep up with doing this every day but I was more keenly aware and extremely mindful of His promises-especially in my own life and in my the lives of my family. His promises are important because He keeps His promises. Because of this, I have hope.
Choosing One Word for the upcoming year is a little easier for me than making (and keeping) resolutions. Of course, I believe in setting goals and thinking big but I tend to set those resolutions aside a little too quickly. Focusing on the One Word can help me change my perspective (or, when needed, keep my perspective), open my eyes to how I love others, live selflessly, keep focused, be disciplined, and become the person I'm made to be.
While thinking about the One Word I would choose, I found this website that I think will prove quite helpful in my search.

Bill and I hope you have had a great Christmas enjoying your family time, vacations, or getting a chance to breathe. As we go into the New Year setting goals, planning our future, and perhaps realigning our hearts and minds with whatever God's plan is for you, we pray you also enjoy health, success, and peace.
Happy New Year to you!
