What’s Your One Word for 2014?

We chat over soup and homemade bread as a new year begins. “What’s with the one word thing?” my friend inquires, “And how can you know what your word will be before the year even gets started? I usually don’t know until the end!”

We laugh and I nod in agreement. Yep, God is full of surprises and 2014 is sure to be too. Then I share why I still love choosing one word for each year. And it really comes down to this…

One word lets me have a filter when you have opportunities come up.

One word gives me focus instead of going in a lot of different directions.

One word helps my friends and family know what I want to intentionally pursue so they can cheer me on and help me stay on track.

My word for 2014 is LOVE, inspired by this verse: Live a life of love {Eph. 5:2}.

Would you like to join me in choosing a word for the year? What really resonates with your heart? I’d love for your to share your word and why you chose it by leaving a comment {subscribers, go to www.holleygerth.com to do so}.
