2017 Word of the Year

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

I prayed and God answered. You may have heard people choose a word of the year. Something you want to define your year. I've been thinking about mine, and a few words came to mind, but when I prayed about it, I got my answer and it was perfect... of course.

Pursue.



I need to pursue my life, not just let it happen. I want certain things to happen or to progress and for that I need to pursue those things. I have just stood by waiting for things to happen for me. I've been very lucky I suppose in that sense, for the better part of my life, but I think it's made me lazy. meh... I know it has. But 2017 will be different.

I want a better marriage.. I need to chase my husband. (literally and figuratively!)
I want to lose weight.. I need to live a healthier lifestyle.
I want a new job.. I need to work on my resume & network.
I want a beautiful home.. I need to spend more time taking care of it.


I want a more fulfilling spiritual life... I need to pursue God.

I need to "hunt, go after, chase" my goals.

Anyone else have a word of the year?

    I have been doing that the last 3 years. This year is consistency. In all the things I do I need to be more consistent. I start and stop too much.

    emoticon I could have totally written this myself. I just wrote a journal entry in my 'home' journal, and I swear, it reads almost word for word what you just wrote.
    It's me... "JunesHope", but I've changed it to JunesJoy because I closed my other page last year.
    Restarting this year and I absolutely know that I'm going to do this, because I honestly don't have another choice. I want to live life to the fullest.

    I think its a great word and the way you have applied it to your life and what you want seems very practical and achievable. I've never done a word of the year before...

    Absolutely love it! I shared about my word of the year - Enough - in our Daily Check In feed on our team so won't rehash it here. So glad to hear though that you too are using a word of the year. Praying for guidance for your word was super wise. Can't wait to see where your word takes you!
