My Word for 2017 :: Content(ment)

I love this time of year. There’s something therapeutic to me about reflecting on the past 365 days and anticipating all that could happen in the next 365.

Last year my word for the year was “fruitful?” Just a few months in to the year and I realized that the heart behind that word when I chose it was full of striving and trying hard to make my life look picture perfect … and God in his kindness and grace and mercy loved me too much to let me wear myself out this way. My year took a turn when I understood what true fruitfulness really looked like.


This year, I’m continuing along in the same vein with “content.” Patience, grace toward myself, and gratitude in all circumstances are the areas I’m weakest in still. I want to hone in on contentment this year and grow in thankfulness and peace in wherever God has me in life. I want to enjoy the life I have instead of wishing mine looked like someone else’s.

What is your word for the year? What do you want to focus on for 2017?
