This is my third year selecting “one little word” to help me through the year – and idea I learned of through Ali Edwards.
The word serves as a sort of a theme for my year. A bit of inspiration. A word to guide me through the year.
Last year it was progress.
The year before it was proactive.
This year it is glorify – as in glorify God in all that I do.
Being able to glorify God is something Andy and I often pray – that what we do and what J does will glorify God.
Recently I came to that as the prayer I have for Andy in his cases – that he glorify God even in the dark and challenging situations that often constitute his work.
Taking this One Little Word thing seriously, I did a bit of research about glorify – what is it to glorify. I came to understand that glorifying God comes down to this:
1. Appreciation – to set God highest in our thoughts;
2. Adoration – think worship God;
3. Affection – loving God; and
4. Subjection – dedicate myself to God, ready to serve him in all I do.
So, there you have it, my one little word for this year.
