My One Word for 2013

To read about my 2012 "one word' click here.  This was an amazing year to LIVE.  I can't believe how it has impacted my life all year to realize when I get halted by something and start trying to figure out or stop living until something is figured out, and then realize, hey I need to live, keep moving, He is here and He will guide me and correct me and direct me, I need not fear.  I have experienced life much more full this year because of my one word.  So thankful for it.  It is something I will continue from now on, LIVE.   Thank you Lord for teaching me!  I am amazed and thankful.

This year I started praying and talking to God about what my One Word for 2013 will be, and the word heavy on my heart is TRUST.  I will be reading this devotional in 2013 that Abba led me to.  I am excited.  At first I thought I am nervous that Trust is my word for this year.  I had questions, God why do I need to trust you more, what is going to happen?  Fear set in and the enemy hurled lies over and over and over.  I say...I trust you Jesus.

The scripture that I feel goes with this that keeps coming to mind is this:

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take (or He will direct your path).

I also want to trust Him with my blog.  I used to journal daily, and write and write, and when I started working full time earlier this year, I stopped and it was more like a few times a week or maybe once a week.  I would read back into my journal the past year or two and saw how much I talked about me, and how much I was trying to figure things out.  So I feel like what I am going to start doing is to use my blog as a journal and share my heart as I feel led and also for accountability, and also I want to do something I have read about recently.  A praise journal, or a thankful journal.  And each day write all I am thankful for and all I can praise Him for, so I can continue to renew my mind and have my thoughts not focused on myself, but focused on God. 

What is your one word for 2013?  Have you thought about it?  Pray about it and see what comes up.  Here is the link to explain it a bit more:

Today's Thoughts

Good morning!  I wanted to drop in and chat about wanting to get healthy and how I have not taken care of myself a lot the last few years.  I don't think I realized the extent it was at, how much I really focused on what to do, but how much I was NOT doing, as far as eating what will nourish my body and also exercising.  I listened to a CD by Joyce Meyer a few weeks ago called The Importance of Taking Care of Yourself.

Part 1 & Part 2-so good to listen to if you are not on your list of people that you take care of (I wasn't and want to work on being on the top of that list)

So time to do some mind renewing in this area.  I am in denial and really don't want to think about the condition my body is in right now as I have neglected it for so long.  Then I think, well I am going to do something about it, and start thinking in that direction, and then lies start pouring in...

  • how do you think you will get anywhere considering how you have been the last several years
  • yeah right, do you really think you are going to be healthy again
  • do you really think you can do it
  • you shouldn't even try really hard at all because you won't succeed
Do any of these lies sound familiar to you???  Well they are so familiar to me.  I haven't even wanted to get my yearly check up because I know I won't and do not like the condition of my health and body right now.  But why am I going to keep putting it off.  I started reading Eden Diet again by Dr. Rita Hancock, and am again bringing God into this and want His help and guidance to return to my full health and natural weight.  

My one word for 2013, which I will share in another post, is trust.  I am going to work on trusting God in all things and let Him direct the paths, all the while what I really need to remember is that it will be uncomfortable and just because it is hard at first, does not mean that I am not succeeding and it does not mean nothing is going to work.  It means I am starting to fight a fight I haven't even engaged in for years.

My Strengths, My Blog

So if I learned to blog about my strengths, what are the things I need to be sharing and letting FLOW from my heart into my writing?  What are things I get excited about, though many people around me would think I'm a major goofball for getting excited about them? (hehe!) 


  • I get excited about seeking God constantly and seeing what He does each day to direct me and guide me. How he intervenes in every situation and shines through, gives me favor, and makes things all work out.
  • I get excited about the perfect bite, creating a recipe that has the perfect bite.  Also helps to have the least amount of allergens in it as possible!
  • Wherever I am, being all there, blooming where I'm planted.  Seeing what God sees and not what I or other people would see in the littlest situations.  Loving others as I love myself.
So there we have it to start.  The heart of the blog, the life of the blog, hearts, hearts and more exciting hearts!
