TRUST for 2013.....

I have really debated whether or not to choose "a word" for 2013.  Last year, I agonized over the selection of my word for the year.....and didn't really follow my heart....or follow up on it throughout the year. 

However, this year a word keeps creeping into my thoughts, unbidden and repeatedly.  Feeling that last year's word was an utter failure, I resisted the gentle urging that kept pushing this word to the forefront of my mind.....


I must need it......
And need to do it more!

So, on this first day of the new year, I yield to that tugging on my heart to make this a word on which I will focus, pray and act.

 Trust - verb - to place confidence in, depend upon; to hope or expect confidently

How can a five-letter word be so daunting?

Simply because it requires acknowledging that I cannot do or control all things....
it requires letting go to depend on Him in all things.



Sending each of you warm wishes for a wonderful 2013....

  1. I think that's a great word for the year. Trust seems to be the hardest thing for us to do.

    1. Trust is something I seem to have to learn over and over...daily! Probably because it means giving up control for this Type A Control Freak.

    1. I love your word, too, Alecia! Was just checking it out and it really is in the same vein as "trust". So many of the words I am seeing this year are truly inspiring to me!

  4. Your word is perfect...and it won't do you any good if you don't follow your heart. Well done.

  5. Trust is a good word but not at all easy to do for some of us. Good luck working it out this year.

  6. Is it terrible to admit that I am glad this isn't my word. It is so hard! This confession probably means I am getting it next year. Ha!

  7. Trust is s good one. Mine is thanks. Maybe by looking for things to give thanks for I'll learn that I can definitely trust Him with everything.
