I don't normally choose a single word to represent the new year; the goal I have for my Christian life.
But this year, I felt a tug at my heart to choose a word that would, in a sense, be my life goal for the new year.

I searched, looked, even prayed for God to reveal to me the word for 2011.

Nothing. Silence. It wasn't visible to me.
I read the Word thinking that maybe it would come to me there--that it might pop out at me.

I guess I was looking for a revelation?
The longer and harder I looked, the more discouraged I became.
That is, until I stumbled upon a new song by Shawn McDonald.

I now know my word for the year.

It's a simple word, but a marvelous and beautiful action and promise.
I want to be CLOSER to the Lord.
