Have you heard about My One Word- Change Your Life With Just One Word? It is such a great book. The author challenges you to choose one word to focus on for an entire year. I had a difficult time deciding what my word should be for 2014. In the past I've chosen a word but I haven't really focused on it. In fact, I've pretty much forgotten about it within a month or so. I have a history of starting out with a bang and then falling behind or dropping out all together. I'm really not sure why I do this. Perhaps it's because I just don't feel like I have a real purpose for what I'm doing. Wait, what was that word? PURPOSE! Yes, that will be my word for the year. No, I really didn't just have an epiphany and decide on that word. But man, it's a great word for me. The dictionary defines the word this way:
I want this to be my purpose in ALL that I do. When I don't want to complete a task- I will remind myself I'm doing this for the Lord. What I'm tempted to do the task halfheartedly- I will remind myself to do it as if I'm doing it for the Lord. Would I only do half the job if I was doing it for Him? I sure hope not!!
The song Do Everything by Steven Curtis Chapman is just another reminder that Everything I do should be done for HIM!
