3 Tips To Pick your Theme Word for the Year​​​​ 2019



Do You Have a Theme Word For The Year?

You crown the year with your goodness, and richness overflows
wherever you are.
—Psalm 65:11 (GW)

Hello lovely friends,

I hope the holiday season has been wonderful for you this year! Did you answer the question above? No worries if you’re answer is NO, this post will help you discover your word.

My theme for the year 2019 is DISCIPLINE, I know it doesn’t sound too inspiring. However, it is where I find myself in this season of life.

I want to encourage you to make 2019 the year you guide it with a theme word. During this time of year, our hearts are shifting towards planning and goal setting for the next year. And having a vision for what we want 2019 to look like requires a bit of purpose.

However, before you dive into the details of planning, how about you pause to see what God has for you?

One way to do this is to ask God for a word or theme that will act as a guidepost for your new season. It is freshly aligning yourselves to see God move in a miraculous way in the new year. What will your theme or word be for 2019?⠀

For me, choosing a theme word for the year it’s an anchor to weigh in all of my decisions through the year. Life is hectic, chaotic, and stressful. Its also busy and time passes by faster than we can grasp at times. This is the reason why I believe that choosing a word to guide my year it's a game changer for living life on purpose.

I know that once you choose a word and realize the effectiveness of it in your life you will continue to do it each year. The point of guiding your year with one word is to focus on what matters most in your life.

It’ll cause you to grow and to prioritize the things that are important to you. Check out the 3 tips I have for choosing the right word for you.

Pray and meditate on what it is that you want for the upcoming year. I know prayer may sound a bit off the grid but prayer helps you connect with your true source the inner you and the God of all the universe. Praying for your word not only ensures that your heart and mind are quiet but that you listen to the gentle whisper of faith.
