A Prayer (and a word) for the New Year

Happy 2018 sweet friends! 

This is my prayer for you this new year...

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 DWELL and my verse is Psalm 37:3 which says...
Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.

I love the word dwell because it's a reminder that I need to linger over, emphasize, or ponder in thought, speech, or writing God's goodness and grace.

 I believe that this year God is telling me to slow down, to savor. 
I can’t dwell in a hurry and I tend to ALWAYS be in a hurry. 

Do you pick a new word of the year? 
If so, share below, I'd love to hear what it is and be praying that word over you!
