Lots of people choose one word to focus on for the new year. I tentatively gave it a go last year with the word "link".

I thought I would forget all about it by, like, February 1st.

But I didn't.

I thought about it a lot 

or something would happen to remind me of it.

I have to say, on many levels, that word really did sum up my 2013.

So much so that I didn't want to ruin it by choosing the wrong word for 2014.

I really wasn't "feeling anything" for a new word.

I wanted to stick with "link".

It was working for me.

I prayed about it.


Then, what seems to be my thing lately, I noticed I was humming this song.

  • Seek ye first the kingdom of God
    And His righteousness;
    And all these things shall be added unto you.
    Hallelu, Hallelujah!
  • Ask, and it shall be given unto you;
    Seek, and you shall find.
    Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
    Hallelu, Hallelujah!
  • Man shall not live by bread alone,
    But by every word
    That proceeds out from the mouth of God.
    Hallelu, Hallelujah!

  • "Seek" really popped out at me.

    Then I second guessed it and thought maybe it should be the word "first".

    As it is when God wants your attention,

    the word SEEK showed up EVERYWHERE.

    When I was looking for something else, I came across this beautiful piece of scripture art. I printed it out and it now hangs right by my computer.

    Don't you love my hanger? Got it from Pick Your Plum.

    I looked everywhere and couldn't find this again to link back to.

    Even when we were dealing with our "blessing of lice" over the long weekend,

    the word "seek" was right on the tip of my tongue.

    Seek and destroy.

    But also, thanks to my husband,

    seek God in this

    because this is His provision.

    And so it is.

    What is your word for 2014?


    1. I love that word art, it is gorgeous and your hanger is too. I look forward to reading how seek slips in throughout the year. =)
