So all over the place recently, I have seen mention of choosing one word for the year as an alternative to making resolutions. It is all about choosing the one word that God speaks to a person’s heart. Or maybe God leads someone else to help pick a word.
So I have read about it all over Facebook and in various online communities I am part of now. But I could not really decide if it was the right thing for me or not. Until yesterday. Along with reading about choosing a word, I had been looking into selecting a life verse. Over the past year or so, I have played around with the idea of a life verse, but I didn’t get too far with it. So yesterday, I started doing research. I looked at blogs and websites and studied various verses. I finally found several that really stood out to me. But the one that really jumped off the page was Psalm 51:10 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”
This verse speaks to everything I pray for 2015. I want to “create”. I want to create memories with my family and create bonds with our children. I want to “create” a haven in our home. I want to create blog posts and see where blogging takes me. I want to create quilts and crocheted blankets for my family and others. I want to create ideas and write them down on paper. I want to “create” a deeper and more satisfying relationship with God and with studying my Bible. So I have selected #create as my word for the year.
Have you selected a word for 2015? If you have, I would love to hear it.
