Instead of making New Years resolutions in 2014, I’m choosing One Little Word. I’ve seen several people talk about One Little Word on various blogs. I did some research and discovered that One Little Word began in 2006 when Ali Edwards decided to choose one single word to become her focus for the upcoming year, and today One Little Word has grown into a movement of people looking to integrate their particular word into their daily lives. Check out Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #onelittleword.
My word for 2014 is SPACE. I need it for myself. And, I need to give it to others. During the coming year I want to find the space I need to occupy; the space that is exactly what God wants for me. I don’t know what that space looks like. It may be smaller or larger. It may be in a totally different in location. It may mean giving more space to people in my life. It may mean including others in my space. Or, it could mean the more painful task of separating myself from the familiar and comfortable relationships of today.
As Ali says, “And what do you do with this one little word? You live with it. You invite it into your life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities.”
My word is Space. Do you have a word?
