A few weeks ago, I posted on Facebook about my word for the year. I've never had a word for the year. Last year I had a song for the year ("Give Me Jesus," the All Sons & Daughters version), but I've never picked one word to focus on for the entire year.
It’s a reminder that I can react one of two ways when circumstances throw me for a loop. I can choose to take it in stride and keep my eyes focused on the Lord, remembering that He makes me strong and steadfast. Or I can wallow in my emotions and spend too much time being on an emotional roller-coaster.
Wow. I'm kind of ashamed to admit how often I ride the emotional roller-coaster. So in an effort to get off the crazy, emotional coaster, I will focus on this word.
steadfast- fixed in direction; firm in purpose, resolution, faith, attachment; unwavering
Just for good measure, I found a verse to go along with my word.
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3If you picked one word or phrase to focus on this year, what would it be? For those who've already chosen a word, what is it? What made you choose that particular word?
