2012 Word of the Year: Persevere

24 Jan

Inspired by Ali Edwards, I have chosen my word of 2012: PERSEVERE.

Persevere: to persist in anything undertaken.

For some reason, this word suits me. It means that when things are challenging, you keep going. When you don’t know where your next step is, trust God and take a step forward.

Persevere. Keep going. Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.

Do you have a word of the year? I’d love to hear what you’ve chosen to inspire you this calendar year.
