One Word Resolutions

One Word.

One word that sums up your intentions for the year. One word that identifies your focus for 2011.

Sounds simple enough.

It might be perfect for those of us who are hesitant to make New Year's Resolutions. Let's just stop using the word "resolutions" because it leaves a bad taste in our mouths, doesn't it? We've all been bit by January's good intentions that cease to be by March.

Sometimes we fail because we make such a long list of goals that we cannot possibly tackle them all at once. So, at some point when we are failing to live up to the dreams we had envisioned, we finally just throw in the towel and stop trying.

What can we do to keep that from happening this year? Maybe the post titled, One Word Prayers, on Lysa TerKeurst's blog will inspire you today. Keep it simple and just maybe we'll have something good to report a year from now.

Restore. Crave. Discover. Renew. Connect. Trust. Reveal. Prayer. Love. Forgive. Intimate. Experience. Focus. Joy. Listen. Set Free. Journal. Teach. Relationship.

What word would you choose?
