Word of the Year: SERVE

Can you believe it's 2015?
It is closer to 2030 than it is to 2000.  Wow. Just wow.

I spend lots of time leading up to the new year thinking
 about and praying about
 my word and verse for the following year. 

This year my word is SERVE and my verse is Colossians 3:23-24. 

I've always been someone who felt called to serve others 
and to serve when and where I can. 
But the problem is that I, like most people, tend to add service 
on AFTER all the other things in my life. 
I serve when I have extra time and that's not what
 I believe God has called me to do. 

So this year I plan to put serving others at the front-
 to purposefully and intentionally plan to serve. 
To pray for and look for opportunities to serve others 
and to do so faithfully and sacrificially. 
I always make a print of my word and verse for the year 
and this year I offered to make one for my friends on FB.  

If you are interested in downloading one of their words which included:
trust, pray, love, intentional, discipline, free, order, strong, 
hope, seek, perseverance, shine, breathe
you can find them all HERE.  

Do you choose a word and verse each year?
 If so, what is yours for 2015?
