Renew | Restore | Rebuild


In 2010, I was at the end of my rope. Ever been at the end of your rope? It could with your spouse, kids, job, finances, school or 1000 other things. Maybe you’re at the end of your rope right now? Personally, I was at the end of my rope with my job…which happened to be a family business…my family business.

It was a sick at the pit of my stomach period of time.

At the end of 2010, my wife, Kia, came home one day from a coffee date with a friend. She announced that together they were starting a personal project for 2011. This is typically when I tune out. For some reason I didn’t that day. She told me they were had each chosen one word to focus on for the entire year.

It was called the Word of the Year project.

Again, I normally don’t go in for this type of thing, but I was at the end of my rope. I needed something…something new and different. So on a whim and not much thought, I jumped in.

I chose the word FREEDOM.

I don’t use this phrase lightly; it changed my life. All year long, God showed me truths about FREEDOM. He spoke in ways I hadn’t heard in years. Something changed, and if I had to wrap it up in one word, it would be “intentional”.

In 2011, I became intentional about changing my life, hearing from God and applying those two things together.

The Story Continues

That was 6 years ago. 2017 marks my 7th "Word of the Year", and each year the project continues to be meaningful to me.

This year my word is RESTORE. The meaning is just beginning to unfold, but it begins here:

Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.
Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls
and a restorer of homes.  -Isaiah 58:12

I'm called to rebuild, renew and RESTORE in 2017. How about you?
