The word always seems to present itself to me in some way as the current year draws to a close. I never have to go looking too hard for it. Usually an idea comes from somewhere and then keeps recurring in different ways. Like directional signs on life's highway, telling me that this is indeed the way I am supposed to go. Gentle hints from God that this should be my focus for the coming year.
For 2016 the word that has been given to me is Better:
Better work habits.
Better organization and planning.
Better communication with the Lord.
A Better year.
A Better life.
A Better me.
