There are many ways to begin. Movements such as “One Word,” “One Scripture, “Infusion Words,” and goal setting are all over the internet. Which ones will help us be all we can in 2014? How to pick the right one for you?
I can’t answer that for you, however, I do know one thing is true: words are powerful. Words bring grace into our lives. Words can also bring sorrow. Words bring us joy.
With words we make promises, we make deals, we seal marriages and say goodbye to loved ones. Using words we create friendships and enemies. Words are meaningful. They are not just ink on a page or wasted breath. Words affect us.
So whatever method you choose – just begin. There is no right way. Choose what connects you to what you want in 2014. Choose what makes you come alive. Prayerfully give it consideration and then begin.
I have chosen to do several methods because that’s what works for me. I am beginning this new year with:
My One Word = Praise
My 2014 Scripture Focus = Habakkuk 3:18 MSG
I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God.”
I haven’t created all my goals yet for the year, but each one will be prayed over and connected to my focus for the year – Praise! I want to make sure that God is at the center of everything I do. Praising Him is a great way to begin!
