This annual custom has been around longer than you and I might think. According to Webster, New Year’s resolutions have been around since 1671. A Scottish writer named Anne Halkett wrote certain “resolutions” such as “I will not offend any more” on January 2nd of her writings, which possibly indicates that this was a common practice at that time.
And in recent years, many of us have taken those yearly resolutions and decided to focus on just one word. This simple, yet profound word helps us stay on track and get back on track with just its mere mention. Yes, this has become quite the practice and is often commemorated by people making pictures with their word or even getting a tattoo of it.
What’s your Word for the year? Do you have one? Do you want one but haven’t decided on what it is yet?
Well, our Leading and Loving It team would love to hear what your word is. Not only that, we want to pray for you in regard to it.
So, in the comments below, please share your word with us. We will be praying that 2017 will be your best year yet!
