On New Year’s Day I shared my one word for 2016: Walk. There are many references to that in Scripture, and as I read through my Bible this year armed with my Sharpies, I’m on the hunt. Tonight, I found this:
Just as Noah walked with God, I want to trust God and be faithful to Him. At the end of the day, at the end of the week, at the end of this year, may it be so: Anne walked with God.
Off and on through the years, I’ve known people who have chosen a word for the year, and I’ve done it a time or two myself. Inspired by a recent conversation with coworkers, I’ve been thinking about a word that could be my theme for 2016, and chapter 5 of Ephesians led me to choose walk for this year. There, Paul exhorts us to:
- walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us
- walk as children of the light
- look carefully how we walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
I want to grow in these areas and prayerfully meditate on how I walk in faith this year. There are so many references on walking in Scripture, and I’ll look for them as I read through the Bible.
Oh, and I also want to literally walk more this year. 🙂
So that’s my #oneword #wordoftheyear for 2016. If you have one, please share.
