My Word

Last week J did a post about resolutions, only not really, you can read about it here. Then Nonny did a post about her word here.

I have to tell you I really loved that idea so I had to really think about it and come up with my word.

I went back and forth between two different words and settled with this one.


I will strive to be more obedient to God, in all things.

I will try to be a more loving wife, more involved parent, more trusting friend.

I will strive to be a shining example of Gods love.

Yes, I know, I will fall short, undoubtedly I will become frustrated with my kids or husband, or someone will say something I don't like, but I will try to remember that everything I do should be pleasing to the Lord. But I will continue to try.

Obedience is something I can apply to every aspect I can think of, I can be obedient with my savings.

I can be obedient with my tithing.

I can be obedient with my worship and prayer life. And I really want to be a more obedient servant. I must admit that at times I get frustrated and down right tired, but I will be obedient and have a better attitude.

The bible tells us if we are obedient we will be rewarded. Not necessarily with monetary things but with blessings. That's enough for me.

What's your word for 2010?


  1. Good word. You already ARE a shining example to me! Thanks for this. I should try to be more OBEDIENT also.

  2. Your word is FABULOUS!

    I love it :)

    Sooo glad we are all doing words for 2010!
