1 word. 365 days.

Lord, I don’t want to float through my day, barely aware of You.

I never want You to be an afterthought.

That’s my prayer for this year.

And the response of God was,

Be intentional.

And I realize just how little intent I’ve had.  A million thoughts and ideas find their way in and out of my mind.

Wishes wished to be more like her because she knows her Bible so well.

A heart’s desire to hear from God like he does.

An ache to spend time alone in the quiet with the Lover like she does.

But none of that just…happens.

You don’t accidentally learn scripture.

You don’t build a relationship in passing.

You don’t escape to the quiet without moving away from the noise.

Be intentional.

Resolve to do…and then do.

I will put one foot in front of the other and follow along behind the Master…on purpose.

I will seek You out with everything in me.

I will fix my eyes on You, God.

My faith is intentional.


It’s not about resolutions.

It’s not about “doing” better or “being” better.

It’s just one word.

But not just any word.

It’s your word.
