How would you answer these questions?
Think about them this month. Talk them over with fellow One-Worders or with a friend. Pray for wisdom in how you’d like to answer these same questions at the end of the year.
1. WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS WORD?
In 2022 as in prior years my WOTY was given to me by God.
- 2020 – Attitude of Gratitude
- 2021 – Abide
- 2022 – Encouragement
There seems to be a natural progression from one to the other, which leads me to ponder what word God has planned for 2023.
2. WHY IS THAT GOAL IMPORTANT TO ME?
As I give authentic, loving encouragement to others I am spreading the love of Christ in new ways.
The amazing thing is, as I listen to and follow God’s prompting, He blesses me in unimaginable ways.
3. WHY IS THIS WORD HELPING ME THIS YEAR OR NOT HELPING ME?
No matter how hard we try, or how much time we have…we can’t out-give God. Notwithstanding, it is a pleasant distraction to try.
But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. – Hebrews 3:13 ESV
