a new year.

A word, instead of a resolution.

A Bible verse, in lieu of a random mantra.

A few acquaintances have chosen a word, accompanied by a Bible verse instead of making a resolution for the new year. I find the concept intriguing.

I’ve been chewing on the idea for a few weeks.

Trying to find a word big enough to capture a whole year.

Rich enough to give me space to grow in depth.

Poignant enough to make a statement.

Powerful enough that only the Lord could fulfill it.

If you had to choose a word what word would you choose?

What Bible verse would you want to mark the next year of your life?

I think I’ve settled on “Still”.

For a lot of reasons.

“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.” Psalm 37:7

“The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

“But I have calmed and quieted my soul…” Psalm 131:2

Because I need to work on my ability to sit still.

And I need to work on the precursor to the stillness – trusting the One who WAS and IS and IS TO COME.

I think I’m a smidge antsy by nature. But my prayer is that this year is defined by my ability to be still in Him.

What are you praying will define your year?

Love,

katie
