It is now 2020 and my word of the year has officially been chosen. I have decided that my word for 2020 will be "steadfast". I actually have a little print in my room with Psalm 51:10 on it and I decided that focusing on this word and verse would be a good one to enter into the new year and decade with.

If you have followed along with me over the last year you would have seen that I actually started choosing a word for the year for the first time in 2019. I hadn't ever really thought of choosing one until many people I follow started sharing about their chosen words which inspired me to choose my own.

I am glad that I decided to do it last year because, throughout the year when I always saw my chosen word which was "praise" and my verse which was Psalm 103:1, it reminded me to praise anyway no matter what my circumstances looked like. Since knowing how important the word was to me last year I believe that this year could be the same.

I chose this word for this year because it is always a good reminder to stay strong throughout any experience life can throw at you. Staying strong in faith and what I believe in is the foundation for living life well.

2020 might have some unexpected events or seasons and hopefully some good ones! Throughout those seasons and any more that I may face in the future, I want to always be reminded to be steadfast in my faith. Writing down my word and verse will help me remember to do that throughout this year.

The sign that I have in my room is Psalm 51:10 so choosing my verse was a given. It reads "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me" (NIV). I really like this verse because it is actually a prayer that I always go back to. Having a pure heart and a steadfast spirit is so important for living the life that God intended us to live but, as fallen humans, it can be challenging to adopt. Having this verse as a reminder will be a nice way of challenging myself every day to turn away from sin and choose what God has created me for.

As the new year just starts, I am already beginning to see what God has in store for me over the next 12 months and it is exciting (maybe a little nerve-racking too?)! After all, we are not even 1 week into the new year and I already have been offered a really great job! Thanks God!

Only He knows what the rest of the year will look like for each one of us but I can already tell you that I am stoked to be on the ride. The future is unknown but I do know that I can always look back to my word and verse and be reminded of what is most important through it all. ♥
