One Word 2013

So I saw in Blog Land where an awesome lady was making buttons for your ONE WORD... just because...

How cool is that?

That lady is Melanie at http://www.onlyabreath.com/

So I had to think about what my word for 2013 would be... & this is what I came up with


FOCUS!

Its really hard to pick a word that you want to sort of LIVE by for a year...

but I have my life verse for the year...
its one I've had on here before - but its really hitting my heart stronger then ever in so many ways

.... I FOCUS on this one thing:  forgetting the past & looking forward to what lies ahead.  I press on to reach the end of the race & receive the heavenly prize for which God,
through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
-Phil 3:13-14


That's what I want to do this year... change my focus...

Keep it on God
Keep it on the future

I'm so bad at looking behind & putting so much focus & energy on what happened - instead of what CAN happen in the future.








All of this to me screams of that scripture

Where is my FOCUS?


I'm going to strive to get my focus off of fear & worry...

In life ...
in all the things I do

Work... running... relationships...
All of it - where is my focus?

If I keep it where it should be - there should be no negative...

I'm excited to remind myself to focus on good things in life...

& I'm really excited to take this word & see how it speaks to me through Scripture.
How God reminds me where my focus should be in life...

I know is going to be a blessing...

At the end of the year, I want my focus to be 2nd nature...
where my eyes automatically turn....
where my heart instrinctly goes...

Now, I'm linking up to see everyone else's word for the year...
I know its a personal thing - so its exciting to see what everyone else is going to FOCUS on this year
(like that?... see, I have the perfect word)

What a great word for the year! I can't focus long enough to think of one word that can be my word for the year, but now I'll be working on it and putting my thinking cap on!

That is a great word choice! Focus is definitely something that we could all use more of in our lives.

My word for this year is act. As in action, not act as in get on stage.

I have spent 90% of my life looking in the rear view mirror and hating what I saw. I tend to dwell on things. Working on getting past that...

carma said...

but enough about me - sheesh - good luck w/your goals - you seem like a very positive person and I'm sure you will be able to achieve them

Thanks so much for leading me to the One Word group created at Only A Breath. You're not going to believe it, but I posted about this very thing today without knowing that this was going on in "blog land." Our God is great!

Best wishes with your Focus throughout the year; I'll be back to check on how your one word is working in your life.
