A few years ago I chose a word for the year...it was Graceful. Honestly, I didn't really 'do anything' with my word. I picked it and then I just let it set...what good does that do? What I didn't know then that Ali Edwards actually runs a One Little Word workshop to help you document and stay with your word for the year. There are monthly prompts and a wonderful Facebook group for support and inspiration. I was already being called to a word when I heard about the workshop so I decided to go for it...the workshop and really getting into my word this year. What word would draw me into a year long relationship you ask? That word is...
done on purpose; deliberate
Great word, right? I think so too! It is, though, an all encompassing word which, I can see, working in my life in so many different ways. Intentional, of course starts with my family, the time I spend with them, the things I say (and how I say them), and the things I do with them. Intentional also works into areas of my life such as my health. I need to be intentional with my menu planning and meal preparation as well as keeping my body fit through exercise. I also need to be more intentional in my study of God's Word. We will start a Bible study at church next week that I'm looking forward to and from there I will be Intentional in choosing a new study. And what about being Intentional in my interactions with others?
