What are you looking to change in your life next year? That’s the question we need to answer when choosing our goals or New Year’s Resolutions. And whenever I need to change anything, I look to God’s Word to help me. That’s why I’ve created the habit of choosing a favorite scripture verse to embrace and guide me through the year.
And since it’s that time of year for starting over…for making resolutions…for mapping out our plans for the next 12 months…I invite you to select a scripture verse to guide you through the coming year. In fact, I encourage you to choose a Verse of the Year as the foundation for the change you want to see in your life.
For the past several years, I have chosen a Word of the Year (you can read more about that here). And the last few years I’ve decided to select my Word of the Year through prayerful consideration of God’s Word. I figure, if you’re going to choose A word, shouldn’t you start with THE Word?
Last year I selected the word “Choose” based on Galatians 5:22-23 and my desire to choose the fruits of the spirit. In 2015, it was “Listen” inspired by Psalm 25:4. The year before, I chose “Nourish” guided by John 6:35. My intention was to nourish the areas of my life that were important to me. The year before, I chose “Unity” based on Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 because I wanted God’s guidance in creating more unity in my relationships. The year before I chose “Light” based on Matthew 5:16 because I was feeling called to shine a little brighter.
