I have read in the past couple of years, about bloggers choosing a 'word' for the new year. I have chosen a verse for the new year in the past, but am intrigued with the idea of choosing a word for the year.
A word that I want to focus on. To live. To become. To make a part of my heart and mind.
As I contemplated this idea, I saw a word that seemed to immediately fit. It's a word that already expressed a little flicker of hope in my heart. And a word that I believe will be 'faith in action' for me.
My word for 2011 is.....Anticipation.
It fits a special prayer request that I have for 2011. It fits our lives right now as we are newly transplanted to southern Indiana and still have much to learn and many new friends to make. It fits my mood when I arise in the mornings...greeting a brand new day full of possibilities. I usually anticipate each new day with hopes and plans.
Anticipation also shows that I am living by faith that God is going to work out His plans for me and my loved ones in the coming year. His plans will not be thwarted. And they will be good.
I love fresh, new starts. Mornings. New months. New beginnings.
So I am looking forward to 2011 with A N T I C I P A T I O N. To see what the next chapters are in this story of our lives that God is writing.
What word might you choose for 2011?
