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.
