Continued….I Love the power of a WORD!

January 3, 2013 — 7 Comments


If you haven’t read yesterday’s post about finding one word on which to focus my life this next year, you might want to read it prior to reading this post.

I found great synonyms for my word. Words like: aboveboard, deeply ,earnestly, from the bottom of heart, genuinely, in all conscience, in all sincerity, in good faith, ingenuously, profoundly, really, truly, truthfully, without equivocation.

This word can be applied in all areas of my life and will enhance whatever task I am doing or will do. Applying this word to the aspects of my life will most likely produce fruitfulness in whatever area it is utilized! Already I have seen its positive affect on my relationships and responsibilities. This will make more sense once I reveal my one word!

So, drum roll please………. my One Word for 2013 is:

My One Word

 The definition in my old Webster’s dictionary defined wholeheartedly as: “a sincerity and earnestness, as in devotion to a person, cause or the like!”

 My journal reads: “Lord, this is my desire, but…Oh, how I need Your grace to make it happen. To not extend myself too far, yet to do life with wholehearted devotion to it. I wholeheartedly enter 2013. I wholeheartedly yield to You and to the plans and purposes You have for my life. And I wholeheartedly expect and receive Your direction!”

It goes on to say: “I wonder how this word can be measured? Surely, if one taught wholeheartedly, studied wholeheartedly, parented wholeheartedly, worshiped wholeheartedly, wrote wholeheartedly and lived wholeheartedly, the outcome could be measured.”

Only time will reveal if it can be measured or not!

So – 2013 – here I come – WHOLEHEARTEDLY!!!

  1. I love your word. And I love this concept. It really is so satisfying to stop and regroup as the year begins, to make plans and expect good things and decide again the kind of person you want to be and the life you want to live. Your word is perfect.

  2. I always love how I can hear your voice in your words. It makes my heart smile. I love your word choice & I’m sure it will play out in your life far beyond what you can think or imagine because after all… isn’t that what Jesus did? Lived & loved wholeheartedly? So of course He will answer this prayer… wholeheartedly.

    Love you dear friend! Thanks so much for this little word study.

  3. Your word is perfect for you. I know that God will pour out His Grace and that you will see and do things “wholeheartedly” this year that will surprise and bless you. I agree with Bonelle. I hear your voice when I read your writings. Blessings!

  4. I love this, and I love your word!! I look forward to hearing how God shapes your year with this word! And I might just give your idea a try.

    • Thanks Karla! I can’t tell you how many times the Lord reminds me of my word! I am amazed! It’s definitely playing a big part in my every day life! Let me know if you give it a try!
