Bold- One Word Challenge 2022
Have you ever had the same word keep popping up in the books you are reading?
Each New Year, I pick one word that I want to focus on. Instead of making resolutions, I choose a word that sums up who I want to be or how I want to live the following year. I have participated in this One Word Challenge for over eight years now.
This year, my word for 2022 is BOLD.
In the book of Acts, I love how the people are amazed and describe Peter and John as ordinary men who speak with boldness because they have been with Jesus. Check out a couple different versions of Acts 4:13 below:
“The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with him.“ Acts 4:13 The Passion Translation
“When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John and could see that they were obviously uneducated non-professionals, they were amazed and realized what being with Jesus had done for them!” Acts 4:13 Living Bible
I also want to speak and live boldly because I have spent time with Jesus!
So this 2022, I am praying for boldness and inviting the Holy Spirit into my ministry: my Depth podcast, my book, my speaking, and my writing as well as my motherhood and all areas of my life.
Note: My college roommate and I love to meet at the beach and write our words in the sand. It is a tradition we have done for the last 4-5 years. So thankful for a gorgeous sunny day earlier this week. Just wanted to share with you a couple of the pictures.
