A Theme for the New Year

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24 (ESV)

MANY PEOPLE SELECT a word for the new year that becomes a theme, a meditation and a prayer for the next twelve months. To find your word, sit down and pray. Make a list of words that come to you. Perhaps you’ll come up with something like balance, patience or abundance. The possibilities are endless!

Heavenly Father, guide me to a word for the coming year. A word that will help me grow.
