I’ve chosen a word. One word to define 2014. Abby’s explosive prayer greatly influenced my thoughts. The phrase holy imbalance has consumed my thought life.
Abundant will direct my holy imbalance in 2014. Here is my journal entry:
Abundant. There are an abundant of choices for me every day. Choices that are good and choices that are better. I feel pulled in an abundant different directions and I am only one person. Sometimes I stand in the midst of choices and feel overwhelmed. Sometimes paralyzed. Sometimes excited.
Abundant involves saying “no”.
Saying “no” to less than the best use of my time, talents, and energy is the gateway to the abundant life.
And abundant involves wanting more. Believing that God has “abundantly more than all I could ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20-21). I want adventure and more in all the right areas. I want to push and strive and yearn for God’s best for me.
Abundant involves saying, “yes!” Unabashedly walking in the works God has prepared before hand for me.
Abundant involves saying “no” to the good in order to say “yes” to the best.
Praying that my 2014 may be abundant in all the right ways.

I haven’t chosen a word; being concise is hard for me. However, I really like your word!! It resonants with my soul.
Yes, life gives us more. Distinguishing the good from the better is a tough job!
