Since 2011 I have chosen a theme word for the year to focus on. Last year was "gaze" and I found myself spending a lot of time gazing on nature and just relaxing. It was so much more than that and you can see the graphic and read the blog post.
I utilized this word to begin writing my next book, SamePage:Conversations.
You can go to this list to ponder what word you want to use for 2016. My 2016 word was not even on the list. It came to me quiet suddenly when I was considering what devotion book to write next. I have not written any devotions yet, but have my mind prepared to watch out for conversations that speak to me in 2016 to write the devotions. I have no deadline for completing the book, only to follow God's lead as I feel Him speaking to me.
