My Word of the Year for 2024

If you haven't chosen a Word of the Year for 2024 yet, no need to worry! There's still time to pick your word. I discovered the Word of the Year concept in 2018 when several friends had chosen one, sparking my curiosity about the hype. I found that having a Word of the Year provides a growth focus for the year.

The word is meant to represent a central way you are depending on God in the year to come. It helps you determine who you want to become by the end of the year. 

When you have a word of the year, it helps you to be intentional about how you spend the hours, days, and months of the year. 

Word of the Year

The word God put on my heart for this year is cultivate. This word often brings to mind the gardens of my childhood. No matter where we lived, my Mom always made sure we had a garden. My favorite food from the garden was the round, juicy tomatoes.

As a child, I didn’t understand that the tomatoes didn't get red and juicy overnight. It took time and effort on my Mom’s part to produce those beautiful and delicious tomatoes. She needed to make sure the weeds were pulled out so they wouldn’t choke the tomato plants. My Mom had to water the garden often to help the tomatoes grow. 

In this coming year, I want to tend to different areas of my life to prepare for new growth. I long to become more like Jesus and that will take time and effort. I desire to cultivate relationships with my family, friends, and church community. This year, I have various goals and plans that I want to develop and nurture. I am excited to see how God uses my word of the year. 

Cultivate

God is the one who helps us to cultivate in our lives. The Scripture Verse that goes along with my word of the year is:

“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5, NLT

This verse challenges me to stay rooted in Jesus. Apart from Him, I can do nothing. I won’t be able to cultivate anything in my life without Jesus. As I remain in Him this year, I am expectant to produce much fruit.

What does the word cultivate mean?

Each time I pick out a word of the year, I look up the definition in the dictionary to understand what my word means. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines cultivate as:  “to foster the growth of, to improve by labor, care, or study I also love the definition that Cultivate What Matters uses in their planner, which is “to break up the soil in preparation for new growth. To tend. To grow.” 

This year, I am looking forward to breaking up the soil in my life to prepare for new growth. I am also excited about tending to the different areas of my life and watching God move in powerful ways.

Every meal is a chance to gather, share, and give thanks.

One of my favorite memories from growing up was our meal times together. I wanted to be sure to do that when I had my own family. Dinner is a way to bond as a family and focus on all we have to be grateful for.

How often does your family sit down together? I encourage you to try at least once a week and more if possible.
