What’s The Word?

Today I am participating in Beloved Brews over at my friend, Bonnie’s, blog.

The prompt for today’s writing: What is your One Word for 2015? 

Beloved Brews Linkup

We are only a couple of weeks into the new year. This year is still fresh with possibilities. In the midst of those possibilities there is this word, “renew“.  The word I have chosen. The dictionary gives the definition of renew as to “re-establish (a relationship)”, or to resume (an activity) after an interruption.  And don’t we all deal with the interruptions of life? We get off track and get back on again. We long to renew our strength, our minds, our bodies.

This past year, I started eating differently, I have exercised more, I’ve read more books, and studied more. I’ve tried a lot of things and sometimes I’ve failed. And that is okay.

I have stopped to really see all the ways that God has gifted me, as I have renewed my mind, my body, and my spirit. In 2015, I continue to be renewed, as I step out and try different things….to follow the plan that God has written, uniquely for me.

Not always easy, but always worth it.

Sometimes the path is difficult and I stumble, but God says, “Even youths grow tired and weary,and young men stumble and fall;  but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. (Isaiah 40:30-31) 

Thank you, Lord.

  1. What a great word- and I love the eagle picture too! We have a pair of those living in our backyard- and they are so amazing – strong and powerful and free- Such a wonderful promise God will make us new and fresh and give strength to soar like one of these beautiful birds!! My word is beloved- I too hope to be renewed though to by reframing things this way- Thanks so much for this wonderful post! 🙂

    • Wow! What an awesome personal challenge. I wish you a marvelous renewal this year. I hope to capture a word for this year. I’m waiting on the resolution of some medical issues before I can think clearly. Take care and God bless.
