In a few short hours we’ll load up six vans of college students and trek down to Atlanta for the Passion Conference. It’s just 44,000 students experiencing worship, teaching and community together. Yep, just 44,000. You can imagine the level of excitement and anticipation for what God will do in this big group as well as our own community. You can find out more about Passion here, and you also can listen in to the live feed beginning 7pm Monday (EST).
I’m at a frenetic pace getting all the details for our group as well as my family together, but I couldn’t head out without asking you to start thinking about joining me for a One Word Resolution in 2012.
As Alece says it over on the One Word site, one word is about being intentional with your life in 2012. You choose “one word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live or what you want to achieve by the end of 2012.” It’s that easy. So as I go into a time leading, laughing and serving these students, I encourage you to create a quiet space in your heart. See if God whispers something into it. Repeat that word to yourself. Listen for its echo for a few days. And then take a leap of faith. Choose the word. Decide that you want to grow, to change, to learn. Let that word be the beginning of something new in you for 2012.
Come on back Friday, and I’ll have a space for you to report your word. Just by speaking it forth, you begin the process of making room for what God wants to do in your life in 2012. For some ideas, you can read back on my one word posts from 2011, or check out the one word site or Facebook page.
My one word? I’ll tell you Friday. Until then, I’ll be lifting you up in prayer. Make space. Listen. Receive. And then resolve to live out your word, __________ in 2012. Can’t wait to share our words Friday!
