One Word for 2013

Have your friends been claiming a word of God to focus on in 2013.

Many of my friends of come up with great words....


I've heard so many great words, but this year nothing struck me as the right word for 2013 for me.

I kept thinking about a word. I even prayed about it.

It occurred to me in the past few weeks, I've ended many prayers with, "Thy will be done."

This morning as I once again debated if I could focus on one word for 2013.

Sunday a friend shared that she'd finally given control of a situation to God. Instead of pleading about an issue she turned it over to him. She laughed at herself and confessed once she gave it to God, He took care of the situation.

This translated, to me, "Thy will be done."

So as of this morning I decided instead of one word, I'm going to focus on God's will. I'll try to relax and realize He's in charge.

Instead of one word, I'm going to focus on ..."Thy will be done."

On my drive to work, God gave me the most beautiful sunrise to enjoy.

I hope you all have a great 2013!
