One Word for 2013. Instead of creating goals and resolutions, you select a single word that sums up something you are learning or your focus during this part of your journey. One Word is a powerful concept!
It only took me a moment to select my One Word: ABIDE. This past year has been a painful and frightening journey as my baby grandson fought for his very life and eventually received a heart transplant. We walked through the valley of the shadow of death and that's not a place I want to visit again anytime soon.
During this journey, I clung to Jesus like never before. I wrote many posts about my deeper love and trust in Jesus that developed because of this storm. I don't want to stop clinging just because the clouds have parted. I don't want to treat my God as though I only require His presence in times of trouble.
My heart's desire is to ABIDE in Jesus. I will abide in Jesus out of love and out of obedience. ABIDE will be the word that remains in the forefront of my mind.
