I have all sorts of hopes and dreams for the coming year, too, but this year I want to try something a little different. A few weeks ago I came across a website called OneWord365. The basic idea is to pick a word - one word - that will shape your year, and then write about it throughout the year.
There are so many amazing words to choose from, but when I started praying about it a few days ago, one word came to mind almost immediately and wouldn't go away.
|My OneWord365 for 2013|
On the surface it seems like a really nice word - but I'll confess, I have a sneaking suspicion that this word is going to cost me something. But it's the word I feel like He's speaking over this year, so it's the word I'm going to focus on. I will let compassion shape me and change me and make me more like Jesus - and probably end up with some really good (if possibly heart-breaking) stories along the way.
So here's to a year full of compassion - and to learning all this word will teach me.
What's your one word for 2013? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
