2013 One Little Word


2012 was a year of tremendous change for me. It was a year of unexplainable sickness, quitting the work I love because of said sickness, lots of tears, frustration, questioning, and crying out to God so very many times. But, it was also a year of refocusing on God, growing closer to those I love, realizing how out of balance I was, lots of rest, more time with family and friends, laughter, healthier living, and taking care of myself.

I still don't know why I'm not better, I'm now well into the double digits of doctors I've seen. It's all so very frustrating, but something God keeps telling me in those times of frustration is, "trust me."

Trust me. It sounds so simple, and yet, I make it crazy difficult. I wasn't planning to pick a word for this year, but God keeps bringing this word to mind. I obviously have some growth to achieve in this area. So this year I'm ready and willing to learn all God has to teach me about trust. I want to learn to trust God, with child like faith...or at the very least, get a little bit closer to that kind of trust.

What's your word for 2013? If you don't have one, there is a great list on Ali Edward's blog that might spark some ideas.

Happy 2013!

Trust is a great word and something I need to work on for sure! I hadn't even given the whole word thing any thought and then I saw someone elses word on their blog and my wheels started turning and they're still turning. Still not sure. I pray you feel well soon Cindy! I didn't know you were still struggling with illness! Keep your chin up. :~) Love you!

Love the verse and your word, and will be praying that you find answers as you trust and rest in the Lord. My word for the year is beneficial and my verse is Colossians 10:23 "Everything is permissible, but everything is not beneficial..." I want everything I do, say, eat, etc. to be beneficial to me, my family and my relationship with the Lord. Excited about the fresh new year! Love seeing your knitting and scrapping projects! Stay strong.

I was just going to say that I do not have a word for this year yet, but I know the Lord has been teaching me that He is my portion. Each day He has the portion of strength, (patience, help, or whatever I need) for that day. So, maybe I just found my word, portion. Thanks for sharing your word. Trust is a good one!
Praying for you my friend,
