One Word 2011

I've been inspired by this post and this post to choose one word for the year 2011. It is a word for me. Not for my family or friends but for me. A word that I can focus on in my life. A word to go back to when I need it. It didn't take me long to choose the word...TRUST. Why? Well, I'll try to explain it but in case you haven't noticed...I'm not the best at putting things into words (one reason I decided to blog was to get better at this...anytime that better part wants to kick in would be great!) So, here goes...This year I aim for peace in as many aspects in my life as possible and know that I can only find this through Jesus. I have a strong desire to draw closer to Him and know that through TRUSTing Him and being close to Him, I can find peace. Peace in so many ways. Instead of trying to do things my way, I am choosing to TRUST His way, His will! For those of you that know me, you know that I tend to like things done my way. So, I am looking forward to leaving things to God and TRUSTing that I will find peace with His decisions for me. He knows what is best for my life, why do I tend to fight it if it doesn't seem to be in my plan? So, TRUST with in my spiritual walk with God. TRUST that change is good as I have a feeling 2011 will be bringing many changes to my life. TRUSTing myself that I am bringing my babies up the best way that I know how. TRUSTing my husband with all my heart. TRUSTing that its okay for relationships to change but still be maintained. TRUSTing that forgiveness is the only path to freedom from hurt. TRUST!
This verse has been one of my favorites and was a big part in my decision to make TRUST my word for 2011:
Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:8 )
I hope this challenges you to choose a word for your 2011. It sure does make you think! Leave me a comment and let me know what word you decide on and why. I would love to hear what you have chosen!


  1. Gratefulness! Thankful for everything-big or small, much or little. I have so many dreams and plans, but no matter the outcome, I want to be grateful, ALWAYS, for all of the blessings that I've been given. I don't want to measure "gratefulness" based on the outside world's view of success. I will know the promises that HE has given me, and I will be grateful for HIS will in my life!
    Thanks for the post! c
