Word of the Year 2016 ~ Hupomone


That time of year again to refocus, and get set with a Word for the Year!
I have given it much thought and have chosen a Greek word for 2016
Hupomone
 
εχηγεομαι

With this word, Hupomone, I have much to learn. I plan to read this article from Studylight.org. I also want to find each of the times it is used in scripture, which seems to be about 32 times and write out those verses and study the word more. I find this word to be more active as my word of the year. I think it will grow many areas of my life, simply by doing a word study on it. Excited to see where God takes me in 2016
