Today on the podcast, we're diving into a topic close to my heart—choosing a word for the year. You know, I've always been fascinated by the power of our words and how they shape our lives. It's like that verse in Proverbs 18:21 that says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Crazy, right?
So, let's talk about picking a word for the year. I love how the Bible shows us the creative power of words. I mean, God literally spoke creation into existence! That's some serious inspiration for us. When we choose a word for the year, it's like we're tapping into that same creative energy. We're setting an intention, a focus, for the year ahead.
But here's the thing—our word needs to be rooted in Scripture. We want it to align with God's truth and purpose for our lives. That's why I love Psalm 19:14, where it says, "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord." It's a reminder to keep our words in line with God's will.
So, how do we pick our word for the year? Well, it's a process. We pray, we reflect, we seek guidance. And most importantly, we listen to the Holy Spirit nudging us in the right direction. Maybe our word represents a trait we want to cultivate or a goal we want to pursue. The key is to choose something that resonates deep within us.
