Last year for the first time, I adopted a key or guide word for the year: Closer.
It expressed my desire, and aim, to draw closer to God, to grow in walking more closely with Him as the year progressed. It blessed me, because it gave me focus, direction, intentionality.
I’m not choosing a new word for this year — mainly because I’m not finished yet with last year’s!
Not that I ever will be in this earthly life, but I was working my way through the word’s letters as an acrostic — C stood for “Call” on Him, L for “Look” at and “Listen” to Him… Blogging about that, I barely got to O. So, on I go. Not that the word, or a bunch of sub-words starting with its letters are anything in themselves, but if I act on them, they’re precious.
In the coming months, instead of a new “One Word,” I’m aiming to explore last year’s “CLOSER” further, via these “subwords” that I see as stepping stones in the path to a closer walk and communion with Him:
