My Word For The Year

I figured it was about time to do some catching up here on my blog. For whatever reason, I just have felt like I haven't had anything much to say and every time I would sit down to write, my mind would just go blank. The months of November and December were more busy than usual for our family, but things have finally slowed down, and our familiar routine is here once again. Thank goodness!

This new year began with such a great anticipation of thinking, dreaming, and hoping for all the things God has in store for me personally as well as our family. There is a stirring in my heart of knowing that this is going to be a year marked with adventure, new opportunities, and the desire for some deep spiritual growth.

I've never been one to make resolutions, but there are some goals that I have laid out for myself this year. As I was going back over my list of goals and praying through each of them, there seemed to be a word that kept coming to my mind. A word that would be very much needed for me to see these goals through ... DISCIPLINE.

The goals that I have listed are very important to me at this season in my life. Whether they are spiritual goals or the goal to diet and exercise, there is a resolve in me to get serious and be disciplined. For me, it's taking little steps that hopefully will produce significant growth and change in my life.

One thing that I am committing to doing this year is memorizing Scripture. This was a discipline that I  started doing this Fall and it truly gave me a new love for His word and the power it can have in my life. I began this year with a very familiar verse, but one in which I wanted to set the tone for this upcoming year.

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all of your heart. 
Jeremiah 29:13


  1. Great word and just what you'll need to memorize Scripture. Here's to a productive year of growth...closer to Him.

  2. I am committing to scripture memorization as well. I like your word for the year!

  5. Love your word...I could use some more discipline in my life! My word this year is SEE with Isaiah 43:19 as my verse. Look forward to your other posts on your word...
