My One Little Word 2014: Anticipate

Photo by Idea Go

No firm resolutions for me, because I always fail at them. I’m encompassing my goals for the year within a word…


After a really difficult year last year, I chose this word because I am ready for a spectacular NEW year!

The definition for anticipate is: 

  • to think of (something that will or might happen in the future)
  • to expect or look ahead to (something) with pleasure
  • to look forward to (something)
Exactly what I want to do each and every day! 
I look forward to…and expect…great things this year. I expect God’s blessing. I expect to grow spiritually. I expect to be at peace emotionally. I expect joy in the simple things. I expect to gain health for my body. I expect to make my house a home. I expect to simplify. I expect to do some writing.  I expect to entertain with hospitality. I expect to see God at work each and every day. 

Am I expecting a lot? Too much? Maybe, but I’m thinking that by anticipating God’s movement and blessing in my life, I will be more finely tuned to Him and will recognize His presence more fully. How could the year not yield blessing?

What a great way to go throughout the day, don’t you think?
