Happy New Year! As we turn the page to a new season full of opportunity and potential, what is your hope, your dream, your prayer for the year?
Everywhere we look—on the internet and in the world—we can find advice and ideas for making New Year's resolutions and Pinterest-pretty plans. But what if we're looking in the wrong place as we set our intentions for this new year? What if the life-giving direction we need is right there in God's Word?
What if 2022 could be different?
With Scripture, God gives us the answers we crave as we cling to the hope that this year will be different than the last. So let's turn to His Word as we focus on a direction for the next twelve months rather than resolutions that only last a few days. Let's look to the Lord as we choose one specific theme, one word that will help us intentionally live our faith in 2022.
Let us help you discover a theme from God's Word that will meet you exactly where you are and help you make decisions, manage emotions, and make the best of every day this year.
You're just a few questions away from your 2022 Word of the Year.
