1 Word Resolution: Picking a Theme for 2015 #NewYearsResolutions

I don't do New Year's Resolutions.  The pressure to keep to a goal I haven't previously been able to accomplish is just too hard.

I saw this idea of picking a word for the year - a theme of sorts - and that really resonated with me.

So that is now my way of doing it.

This year's word was chosen entirely by God.  I heard him whispering it almost immediately to me (not LITERALLY) as soon as I began to pray and ponder what it should be.


I'm not the most trusting person.  I trust myself and my spouse.  That's about it.

I have two goals with this word for the year:

Trust God more -

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  - Proverbs 3:5-6

and to trust people more.

Both will be difficult.  I tend to do things myself because I'm not confident in others.  Trusting the Lord more will be hard - even scary!  I'm not sure what will come my way so I can achieve that goal.  

I'm looking forward to this year long journey.  

I'd also like to recap last year's word LOVE.  I think I've done a good job on this.  I've tried to be a better friend, spouse and parent - in the name of Love!   

So what is your 2015 Word?


  1. Do you know that old hymn? "Trust and be happy in Jesus." I hope your new year is filled with happiness as you trust more.

  2. I am not a fan of resolutions either and definitely prefer a word for the year. Trust can be hard but is freeing at the same time. I pray you have a blessed 2015!
