Dark Mode Off / On

The past few years I have chosen one word to base my new year on. I do not do resolutions. I do a word. In 2014, I started sharing my word with you. 2014 was Embrace and 2015 was Intentional. 2016 has been a hard one to decide on. I see lots of changes this year. A year of growth and renewal.

I had many words in mind:

  • restore
  • whole
  • focus
  • ignite
  • health
  • transform
  • joy
  • balance

How do I pick one word to describe all I hope to accomplish this year? One word to sum it all up and encourage me to stay on track?

Psalms 51 helped me decide on my word! 
Psalms 51:10 –Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    and renew a right spirit within me.

create in me a clean heart oh God Psalms 51:10

I decided on CREATE!

  • Create a new body
  • Create a new mind
  • Create more writing
  • Create quality time with family
  • Create new oppertunities
  • Create joy where there is none
  • Create peace where there is none
  • Create more art and DIY
  • Create more time for devotion and prayer
  • Create closer relationships
  • Create a stronger relationship with God and create a renewed spirit

I want to create a NEW ME that I can be proud of. Create things that make me smile. Create happy moments and memories.So for 2016 I want to create!
