One Word 365

I have finally decided to post on my choice of my word for my @oneword365 resolution. I actually finalized the word on the last day of 2012. But, I waited a few days to share because I wanted to meditate on it and let it sink in. Not just the word, but what it stands for in my life this year.

Picking a word, ONE word, to represent my goals for a whole year is intimidating. It's hard! I started out with a list of different verbs and adjectives that I thought would be good goals for me.  I came up with one word that stuck out way more than the rest.


I need to rely on God more, for his provision, his protection, his wisdom...everything.

I also need to rely on my husband more, and believe what I say is true, that he can {and always will} take care of me, that he is the provider and spiritual head of our family.

Too often I try to stand alone and think that I can handle everything {good or bad} on my own. And, whenever I stand alone, I fail. It's insanity, doing the me thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I am going to rely on God, knowing that he is going to lead me in the decisions I need to make for my family's future.  I am going to rely on God at all times, even when it seems really hard, or even if I don't really feel like it. Because, it's not about what I want or 'feel like', it's about what God wants for me!

And, boy am I excited!

Thank you OneWord365 for creating this inspiring way to bring in the new year!


  1. Girl, I absolutely LOVE this. If I could have a second word, it would be this. I really struggle with this. My one word (will be published tomorrow) will kind-of encompass all of the other words I really think describe where I am at.

    1. Thank you! It was a hard word for me to pick..because I knew if I picked it, then I'd have to work on it. :) can't wait to read yours!

  2. Yes yes and yes. I really really really need to practice relying on God too. I think I agree with WWJ - if I could have a second word, this would probably be it!

    Thanks for linking up to D2I!
