How is your year going so far?
I’ve spent my year getting ready to move into C-Town. It’s amazing how much stuff (aka trash) I can collect in twenty years. 😀
So I’m a little behind on things I wanted to do for 2021. One thing is to find my word for the year. Last year it was JOY. I love that word, even though, sadly, in 2020 joy wasn’t always uppermost on my mind. I mean, Covid 19, masks, church only online, critique only online, my hubby’s cancer, and subsequent funeral, weren’t subjects that bring joy.
I kept looking and praying about my word for the year 2021.
I strongly considered JOY as my word again for 2021, but I like to keep my words as I move on to new ones.
I read blogs and took tests that were supposed to give me my word. One told me OVERCOME should be my word.
Don’t you love this page I borrowed from Blessing Manifesting? Her page just fills me with happiness!
After more prayer, I read (or re-read) a scripture and a word stood up and waved at me.
Pop over and read Isaiah 61. In verse 7 it says, “You will rejoice in your inheritance.” That got my attention.
Then in verse 10, “I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness.
So my word is (ta-ta-tum)
Exalt, revel, celebrate, delight, enjoy, feel happy, and joy are all synonyms for REJOICE. Really, it’s kind of like JOY, all over again, but kicking it up a notch.
Do you have a word of the year? Will you share how you found it and what it is this year?
I really want to talk about it!
