A Purposeful 2016

Do you have a word that sums up your upcoming year?

I decided to choose a word.  I prayed over it.  I had a couple of words that changed over time.  Finally, I prayerfully went with two words – trust and contentment.

These two words have already helped to ground me in the last few weeks.  They’ve been an anchor in my life in this ever-changing world.  They go hand in hand.

Trusting God brings contentment of all types – vocational, material, or relationships.  This doesn’t mean I’m not going to grow, but I will trust God for his leading and not push my way forward as I am sometimes in the habit of doing.

My challenge to you is to think of a word for this new year.  Pick one that can ground you and focus you on fulfilling your purpose.

I’d love to hear what your word or words are!  Leave me a comment below.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not upon your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6
