One Word

One word

One simple word

It should be easy

So why am I struggling?

What word do I want to inspire me in 2012

What word do I want to inspire to in 2012

The word on my heart is TRUE.

This year I want all that I do to be TRUE.

TRUE to my children. I want to spend time with each of my children, watching them grow, walking along side them as journey through life. Sharing their joys, their fears and their adventures.

TRUEto my marriage. Investing in my husband as he invests in me. Stop taking for granted what we have together and start cherishing my marriage with the loving tender care it truly deserves.

TRUEto my faith. I want to discover God in a way I have never imagined. Immersing myself in his word, learning, listening and discovering. Living my life in faith, doing not just being.

TRUEto my friendships.  I want to go on in confidence in friendship, being true to the relationships I’m building. Not pulling away when I feel people are getting to close. Being loyal and understanding when my friends need me.

TRUEto myself. No more hiding behind pretence. Trying to fit in, being someone else.

No more looking in the mirror thinking if only.

I want to embrace the person I am as the person God has created.

Accepting challenges and giving them my best instead of being afraid of failure.

Following my dream of further education and allowing myself to believe I can.

So 2012 is the year I’m going to be true. True to all that I am and all that I can be.

So what word is going to inspire you in 2012?

Psalm 139:13-14

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.  (NIV)

  1. Great word! I like the way you unpacked it. God hasn’t given me a word for this year yet, so I’m hanging onto last year’s word–persevere. I’m still praying about it though.
