Ditch the Resolutions {Word of the Year}

Saturday, December 27, 2014

Tired of making New Year's resolutions that never get fulfilled? Here's another option...

In 2009, I chose PatiencePrayer became the focus in 2010. Grace in 2011 taught me some difficult lessons in forgiveness.  Abide in 2012.  In 2013, Redeemed became the word and the promise that God would take all the grief I was enduring and use it for my good. I decided this past year to Count...to explore what really matters/counts in life. In the second half of 2014, I began to experience a tremendous amount of healing from the events of 2013. I want to continue down that road...Stop by next week and I will share my Word of the Year for 2015 which relates to the healing I have been experiencing.

 My One Word: Change Your Life With Just One Word  is a great resource to learn more about the concept of using a Word of the Year. One word to focus on for the year.  Forget New Year's Resolutions.  When have you ever fulfilled all of them?  And if you have, may I ask, can I meet you?  You must be awesome!  LOL!  A Word for the Year is simpler...helps us focus on how God wants to change our hearts instead of us trying to change our behavior.  Real change only comes with heart change, right?

My One Word: Change Your Life With Just One Word lays out how to pick a word, how to allow God to use that word to transform you, and how to allow the word to "morph" into something unexpected that God has in store for you.  My greatest transformations in the past few years have come not from a bunch of resolutions, but in focusing on just a word. There is also a DVD study that follows a lot of what the book has to offer.

So are you game? Ready to throw out that list of resolutions?  Just say the word...
