My word for 2014 is resolute! It means very determined: having or showing a lot of determination. Synonyms are faithful, bound, purposeful, resolved, set, and single-minded. Antonyms are faltering, hesitant, indecisive, week-kneed and vacillating.
For the past few years, I have chosen a word for the year. These words have played out in different ways over the course of a year, but focusing on a word has helped me say yes to some things and no to others. This year there are a few things that I aim to be resolute about but the main thing is my relationship with Christ. I have seen the difference in my life, marriage, family, etc. when I spend quality time with The Lord, preferably in the morning. Being that I have seen the positives and negatives that come from my spending or not spending time in His Word, I know that this must be what I am single-minded about for 2014.
If you have chosen a word for 2014, I’d love to hear it.
