Words are powerful, and boy do I love them.
Every year God gives me a word [or phrase] to use as a compass for the next 12 months. I use this word throughout the year to grow, reflect, and hone in on who God needs me to me be.
My word for 2020 was fly. I didn’t understand at all what that meant or what the year would hold for me. Honestly, it’s December and I’m just now getting it. After all, fly means to move quickly or be hurled through the air.
Don’t they say hindsight is 2020? See what I did there? Moving homes, moving towns, moving jobs, all during a global pandemic definitely had me feeling like I was being hurled through the air. Some days I landed gracefully, and some days I landed gracelessly. But I landed. And boy did I learn a ton.
This past Sunday God gave me my word for 2021, and I’m pretty pumped about it. My word is FOCUS which is a lot less scary than FLY.
1. Focus on God
2. Focus on Family
3. Focus on Rays of Sunshine
I’m pretty excited to see where this takes me. I’m excited to make the above three things my true center of attention. I’m ready to hone in, dig in, and hopefully not be hurled through the air anymore. 😆
What’s your word?
