One Word

I was over at Faith Barista when Bonnie asked us what one word has God placed on our hearts this year.

To be honest I couldn’t grasp it, my head has been full with ideas, plans, prayers ONE word seemed a crazy notion.

Yet it lingered in my mind (Bonnie has a way of doing that) and I decided I needed to spend some time in prayer about my one word.

Let me tell you this was harder than I imagined, again so many thoughts entered my mind. Then finally I knew my word.


I know and believe in an all loving God, yet a times I am sure he will reject me, that I’m not good enough. So while believing in God and trusting in God was something I’ve had to learn I have to also focus on believing in myself.

I need to BELIEVE that I can be the person I want to be. To reach for my dreams without knocking myself down.

Believe that I can achieve my goals with patience and endurance.

Believe that I am worth something.
That when someone tells me they love me to believe them.

A failure isn’t the end believe in trying again.

Believe that when times are hard that we will come through them.
Believe I will be happy and complete again.

Believe we will all be reunited.

This list could go on forever, believe it…..

From not grasping the idea of one word I have been shocked into realising that ONE word was all I needed.

” Jesus answered “The work of God is this : to believe in the one he has sent” John 6;29

“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty” John 6;35
So what ONE word is on your heart?
