My One Word


For the past few years now a group of my friends and I have participated in the My One Word study and challenge. I have enjoyed seeing God stretch me and teach me through the power of one small word. For those of you interested in learning more about this concept and process check out this book!

My One Word for 2017 is… Grace.

After reflecting on the past year and praying for 2017 I really felt like God is wanting me to focus on Grace. Learning how to extend Grace to others but also learning how to have Grace for myself. 2 Corinthian 12:19 says

“‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”

To say I’m excited about my one word for this year is to say the least. It’s amazing how God has already woven my word into my everyday life. Before I even selected Grace as my one word I stopped by LifeWay Bookstore on my way back from Christmas up north. Sitting there on the shelf was this hot pink book with gold lettering and a pineapple. If you know me you know I love the color pink, so obviously I picked it up. After skimming a few pages I decided to buy it. Can you guess what the name of the book was? Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley.

Up until here recently I wouldn’t have described myself as a perfectionist. I use to think I was pretty easy going and chill. My eyes have been open to see I really do need to have more Grace with the things I do and the people around me. I encourage you to choose a word this year and watch as God uses it to blow your mind.

Bellow are a few words my sweet and precious friends choose for 2017

 

 

My One Word for 2015

My One Word

Last year was my first year focusing on one word. I’m not going to lie to you, it was difficult.

This year I prayed for a while about which word to choose. I wasn’t going to give up because of what happened last year. I wanted to pick a word I knew would challenge my mindset, and way of thinking.

Believe.

Believe that God has a purpose for me. Believe that even in the hard spots, God is with me. Believe that every turn has a purpose. Believe that God’s plan is better then my own. Believe that when God says “not now” there’s a reason.

Believe that He’s not finished with me yet.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 

I truly believe this year God has amazing things in store for my walk with Him, and I cannot wait to see all the things He teaches me.
