Last year I began by choosing a word of the year, granted I didn’t choose my word until February but was introduced to the idea in December of 2012. Many of the blogs that I follow have talked about choosing a word for the year and being the non-traditional in terms of resolutions I thought I might be able to get on the word for a year ban wagon. Resolutions always seem so silly to me, they are hopes and dreams that always seem to fall short of reality. The thought of a word for the year to me, is a simple word that when said in conversations or in passing spark a light in my heart that remind me of my focus. So last year’s word was surrender. The thought behind that word was that I would surrender my thoughts and plans to my Creator, that I would stop striving to be what others want and that I would surrender my will to God. That word served me well for 2013, in many areas of my life I saw a beneficial surrendering. As I began praying about my word for 2014 I was brought to the verse in 1 Timothy 6:12NIV “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” So for the year of 2014 my word is FIGHT! Fight for what is right, fight for my marriage, fight for my children, fight as if there is nothing else that matters.
