My 2016 Words of the Year

Posted by Julie on January 11, 2016 in About Me, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

Yep, you read it right.


In 2013 it was ABUNDANCE.


2015 was all about REVIVE.

Each year I pray for the word or words and invest them into a theme for the year. It’s amazing to watch God work. The word/s always come back with full meaning at the end of year.

I am certain 2016 will be no exception.

This is the earliest I’ve ever received the theme, it was probably late September or early October. How I wanted to blab and dissect it all, but I knew I had to wait.

Until now.

Two words.

Fierce and Perspective

One of my words for this year.

One of my words for 2016.

I’m tempted to flesh it out, define it, and expound. I’ve already seen both words in my vocabulary, and I’ve heard it many places. But experience tells me to wait.

God has a lot to say and show me in a year I already know has expanded vision for what I do. Things are changing in my husband’s 8-5 life. We have a son graduating high school. Another son getting married. College. Middle School.

It’s exciting and scary and awesome and eye opening.

I’m pretty sure it’s also going to be fierce.
