Many people try to make New Year resolutions.
This doesn’t work very well for me.
I don’t stick to New Year resolutions.
I don’t get motivated. I just get discouraged.
The last couple years I have been using Just One Word.
Other people like Ann Voskamp have done this too.
I pick one word to be the theme for the entire year.
I find this to be more motivating.
I can see some progress along the way,
and I can look back at the end of the year, and see changes.
Last year I chose the word, Trust.
The theme was to Trust in God with all my heart, as in Proverbs 3.
This year, I am choosing the word — COME!
As in James 4:8, “Come near to God and He will come near to you.”
You don’t have to be a Christian to do Just One Word.
You don’t have to use a Bible verse to give it direction.
Anyone can use Just One Word to motivate them,
instead of a New Year resolution.
Would you like to use Just One Word?
It is best to use a word that has meaning to you.
I would enjoy knowing what one word you pick, if you want to share in the comments section.
In the coming weeks, I will talk about ways to come near to God, and
why I chose the one word, “come”, for this year.
