Challenged to pick a theme word for 2014, I ran through many possibilities. I love words and the power they hold in them. I am drawn to strong words like explore, dare, grow, …and maybe it will be the right time for one of those words in 2015. But for this year, I chose on tiny little word with a quiet, but big punch – BE.
It is so small that there is a humility about it that draws me. It is small and still, and I need a dose of that. The pace of growth in 2013 was exciting, but now I need a season of stillness where growth can be nurtured and flourish on the inside. I need to be a little less driven, and more content with what, where, and who I am. I need the space to breathe and just BE. To shrink myself a bit and let God be God. To be calm, serene, and still, and from that inner quiet to rise fully into who and Whose I am. To boldly and fully be.
What is your word for 2014?
