Word for the year...

Years ago, Dr. Uth (at First Baptist West Monroe) would challenge us to find a word for the year.  I still think of that every January. 

In years past, my words have been surrender, contentment, opportinities.  You get the idea.

This year it is discipline. I'm hesitant to even choose this word because it sounds so new-years-resolution-ish.  But truthfully, it's something I've been lacking/struggling with lacking for months - both spiritually and physically.  Some things have got to change in my life.  I'm so frustrated with myself - my laziness.  Starting the year with the Daniel Fast is one way to practice. 

What about you? What's your word for 2013?


  1. I chose "joy" for my one word this year. And I plan to write about it on my blog soon, too. My oneword 2012 - "fearless," 2011 - "focus." Again, I wrote about all of 'em on my "old" blog. Btw, LOVE your blog, Niki! Happy New Year!

  2. Since 1985 I have chosen a verse for the year. This year mine is 1 Tim 6:17-19. My one word would be "generous".
