I first got the idea after reading the book “One Perfect Word” by Debbie Macomber. For several years I chose one word which would be my word for the year. When I did this, that word resonated throughout the year and helped me to focus.
Last year I didn’t choose one and as I look back at 2016 it feels undefined.
So I am choosing a word for 2017. The word is ‘committed’. I am committed to stepping out; I am committed to moving forward; I am committed to following the path God has laid before me; I am committed to believing I am not walking alone; I am committed to me; I am committed to action.
So many thoughts, ideas, and desires have flooded my mind and my heart. It is time to get them out of my head, off the paper, and into action. I may fail, yes. But I may succeed. Either result is frightening. But I have committed to facing the results, no matter what it may be.
Do you celebrate a word for the year? What word did you choose?
