One word for your year?

A few of the bloggers I read are talking about choosing a word for the year.  One word to describe the year they are planning to have.

Amber's is transformationKristen's is faith.

There are others I can't remember now.

I chose a verse for the year, but not a word.  Psalm 46:10:

 "Be still, and know that I am God.
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth!” 

This verse is important to me because this year has the potential for a lot of worry.  (What year doesn't?)  

My word of the year could be "still."  But... I'm still thinking about it.  "Faith" would work too.  "Be not afraid" is a short enough phrase that it could be one word.  I'll see what I come up with.

Do you choose a word to signify your year?  Tell me about it.

Here are some more I found:

Janene's is go.

Margi has two:  Simplify and Sanctify.

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE your verse--I recite that often as I'm in a state of transition right now as I decide between quitting my part time job and all that comes along with that. . .Being still is not something I'm good at, so I'll GO out and do what He's calling me to do, no matter how difficult it might be!! Happy New Year!

My word for last year was my name. This year it's 'hope'. I chose two verses- Psalm 43:5 and 62:5. I haven't decided if I'm going to write about it or not. Maybe a post on thoughts and direction for the new year? Sometimes what is in my head is just too much to put on paper (or screen, in this case).

Mine is "organization". Without organization, I'm having issues keeping up on everything!
