Word for the Year

Happy New Year from the Homeschool Review Crew.

A new year.  Time for new beginnings and focus on things to come. As we grow older, we begin to realize just how precious time really is.  In scripture, we are encouraged to “Make good use of every opportunity you have, …”  Ephesians 5:16 Having a single word to help us focus and make good use of our daily opportunities is an easy way of keeping to our goal and allows us to define our actions and choices.  January is a wonderful time to slow down, pray and seek His will for our lives.


When we walk in His way, we walk in rest.  Take some time.  Pray. Seek His will for YOU in 2017. Make it a positive word.  One that will inspire, encourage and uplift you when the going gets tough. Here are a couple of ideas to keep your word handy:

  • Write your word.
  • Draw a word cloud
  • Color a picture.
  • Put it up in a place where you can see it each and every day
  • add it to your mobile devices as a screensaver.

May you experience the depth and breadth of His love for you in 2017.  If you are a blogger, please blog about your word and link up below so we can be inspired and encouraged together.  If you don’t have a blog, leave your word in the comments section. I would love to hear about your inspiring WORD for 2017.


Thank you to Chareen from Every Bed of Roses for writing this article.
