When it comes to choosing a word for this year or any year, I ask God to show me which word He has in mind. What generally happens is that the word will show up several times in different ways. God gave me my word for 2021 the week before Advent. I was reading in my devotional titled HOPE, and it struck me how much the world was in need of hope following 2020.
Then I read a letter from a woman named Hope and sure enough the next day, the first Sunday of Advent, is the week of HOPE. I knew then that HOPE was my word for 2021. May hope fill your heart as we enter into this new year.
