The Word for 2014: Inspire

Many people make lists of resolutions and others set defined goals and still others “name” their year. This year I fall into the last category.

I have been praying for the Lord to give me a word for 2014 and this is it:


INSPIRE others to follow Christ.

INSPIRE my children to live for Christ in their daily lives.

INSPIRE others through my words- written in pixels, spoken, and sung.

INSPIRE others through my art- in colors of pigment on paper and pixels on screen.

Recently I have been re-inspired to follow a God-sized Dream.

What God-sized dream  you say?

Well… Two years ago I wrote a guest post at (in)courage. I wrote about facing my “fear of white” and getting back to painting and art again.

In a wild and crazy round-about way I have been inspired by

my own words.

What has inspired you lately?

Is there anything you have been inspired to do?

I invite you to share about it in the comments below.

    Hi Sharon,
    Thanks for stop[ping by and connecting with me! I love your word and your goals. The one thing worth passing on in life-faith in Jesus. {Inspire to me is passing on the fire; passing on the passion to pursue Christ, right?}

    God bless your family!ReplyCancel
