It seems like the month of December and especially after Christmas everything you see and read is about starting new. It’s about beginning something and sticking with it.

A few years ago I stopped making resolutions. Why do it and within 6 months, 3 months, 30 days or like me 15 days, you had blown it? Instead I choose a statement or a word for the year. Along with the statement I find a bible verse.

Here is my 2017 Vision.

In the last few years, I have allowed my joy to be taken away! Not anymore.

And let’s just say my trust needs a lot of work. So I’ve decided to Choose Joy & Trust!

I found a great verse, Romans 15:13 that fits me perfect for 2017. 

The first thing I’m going to begin to choose joy is get more serious about my blog. I may be the only one reading it, but that’s okay. I’m doing what brings me joy and I pray one day it brings other people joy. I plan on working in 2017 to spread “Cheerfull Heart” to others

The month of January I will be examining Joy and why God wants us to be full of Joy!

Enjoy my Joy!


  1. Joy is my word for 2017 too, James 1 says whenever we experience any troubles to consider it a great opportunity for joy. Let’s just say 2016 was a year of great opportunity for me. My “New Year’s Resolution” is to tweet about my #JoyHunt every day. Yesterday I tweeted the verse from Romans. Our joy comes from the God of hope. Glad to be your neighbor at Do a New Thing today

  2. Hi, Jeanie. I love that you’ve chosen a statement. Joy and Trust seem to be twins, don’t they? Trust brings joy. 🙂 Sounds like a great focus for January! Happy New Year!
