My One Word: Intentional
Intentionality means putting effort in, rather than just letting life happen. From talking to people about Jesus to improving my attitude, behaviors, or health, I want to be intentional about what I do this year. When we set our minds on things and ask God to help, we will be much more likely to accomplish them. I could go through the year unintentionally and most likely, good things would happen: maybe a promotion at work, a friend finally coming to church with me, losing 5 pounds. But, if I chose to make those things happen, if I actively seek them, the rewards will be so much greater!
