This little word packs a powerful punch.
For the past three years I have chosen one word to focus my life around. It is like a theme of the year. One I say over and over to myself and implement into my family, ministry, and spiritual life.
For 2010, I chose the word Create.
To give thanks to God for everything and all things. Even when the bridge appears unsafe, Eucharisteo.
To remember the things of the past in where God has proven His goodness and providence.
To not allow stress and anxiety choke the seed of faith that was implanted into my heart so long ago.
I have been challenged by reading Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts . To count my blessings.
To write them out. Literally to recite them.
"The one who offers Thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies Me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God" Psalm 50:23 ESV
I hope you will join me in choosing one word for 2011.
