Something I have done in my church the last few years is hand out star words. For those not familiar - star words are a word or a phrase to guide you in the year to come. The only rule I have with this practice is you trust your word. In other words no tradsies, no take backs - you get what you get.
I am in a new congregation, introducing this practice for the first time a few weeks ago and when I got my word, I inwardly moaned. This was not the word I wanted at all to guide me in 2023. But I remembered my own refrain - no tradsies, no take backs, you get what you get.
I've been living with the word for a few weeks now and its growing on me. I'm seeing how it may be a beautiful guide for this season of my life, even if I initially wanted to reject it.
Such is life. Sometimes things grow on us - like words. Sometimes we are lead down paths we never saw coming. But there is a spirit of curiosity that can open our hearts and minds to what lies ahead in the unknown.
What is guiding you in this season of your life?
