Are you familiar with the One Word 365 movement? You choose one word to focus on all year long. It’s a word that will guide you, your decisions, your purpose. With one word, you can scrap resolutions because this one word will cover all that. (I’m still choosing to make resolutions. I like them. I know that some people don’t and so this idea is freeing. But since I like them I’m going to do “both/and” because I can.)
I have only chosen “one word” once before and that word was YES. I called it the “Year of Yes” where I resolved to say YES as often as I could to my God, my husband, my children, my parents, my friends. Dying to self and putting others first. It was a stretching year. I said yes to things I didn’t want to say yes to, like emceeing a women’s retreat! But I grew personally when I said yes to hard things, to unselfish things, to God things.
This year I decided to choose one word again. I read Crystal Stine’s word on her Instagram and I thought, “I wonder what word mine would be if I had a word?” And almost immediately it came to me, like a soft whisper in my ear. ENOUGH. The more I meditated on it, the more this word seems right.
This year’s word is ENOUGH. As in…
My grace is enough. (I can do all things through Christ…)
God is enough. (You shall have no other gods before me).
I have enough. (Practice contentment.)
I am enough. (Enough of a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend.)
Do you participate in #OneWord365? If you do, what is your word? Remember, only ONE word. Not two words. Not a phrase. Distill it down to ONE. WORD. Would you share your word in the comments? I’d love to hear what it is.
