My One Little Word for 2013
My “word” for 2013 is TRUTH.
It is the word I am going to be focusing on this whole year. I actually “bit the bullet” and signed up for a class to help me in this endeavor— Ali Edward’s One Little Word class.
I’ve had “words” or phrases for the past two years and did have some success in incorporating them into my life but I felt like I could use some help along those lines. My phrase for 2012 was “Pray and Obey”. My word for 2011 was “Be”.
I chose “Truth” this year because it’s always been very important to me. I love to study the Bible. I don’t ever like to lie. I’ve had “truth” as part of my personal mission statement since 2005, when I first made one.
Being the extremely eclectic person that I am, I will be incorporating Christian things into Ali’s homework. Right off the bat, I looked up several scripture verses that contained the word truth. Here are a few choice ones:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life…Jn. 14:6 KJV
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…Jn. 16:13 KJV
God is spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. Jn. 4:24 KJV
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Jn. 8:32 KJV
Other online websites that focus on one word are:
oneword365.com—not sure if this is distinctly Christian or not, but several Christian ministries are partnering with this
myoneword.org-–definitely distinctly Christian in focus
This whole one word thing fits in perfectly with another study I’m doing all year long—iBloom’s iChoose2 Love My Life. Check out my book review. In week three, we have to choose a theme for the year—exactly like picking a word or phrase!
If you’ve never picked a word, phrase or theme for the year, I encourage you to give it a try!
I love comments!! To leave one, scroll down to almost the bottom and look for “leave a message” or “leave a reply”.
