Somewhere in the middle of November, I began to wonder if I would have a One Word 2022. It’s hard to believe it has been a practice of mine for seven years already.

Each word always seems to find me. The word would repeatedly come before me as I read or listened to sermons. But this year it came announced differently.

Advent. The season of waiting. We wait with anticipation. With expectation. With a humble reverence, knowing the Lord is going to come at just the right time.

We go through the season of Advent, remembering the events leading up to the birth of Christ. We read about His birth, and listen to sermons as the candles are lit throughout the four Sundays.

And somehow this season of waiting does a work of preparation in our hearts. We pause, ponder, and proclaim the birth of our Lord when Christmas Day finally comes.

But what if I were to wait all year?

“Wait” has been defined as: “to remain inactive until something expected happens; to be available or in readiness; to continue in expectation” (from 

My Bible dictionary connects it with expectation.

In thinking about this for over a month now, one Scripture aligned itself with this concept of waiting:

“Lead me to Your truth and teach me, For you are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.” (Psalm 25:5, NASB)

The Word of God has been leading people to in Truth for thousands of years. My desire is that He will lead me and teach me His Truth in greater depth and power as I wait on Him. May my heart be prepared, and expectant, as I wait on Him all the days of this year!
