my one word

My One Word is a movement that has been around since 2007 (I think) that gets rid of all the New Years resolutions that we never keep, and has us focus on one word for the entire year.

I took some time to pray about my word, and the one that I believe God has laid on my heart is serve.

I want to serve God more in 2012.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. - Romans 12:11

 I want to serve my husband more in 2012.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ - Acts 20:35

I want to serve my church more in 2012.
But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. - 1 Corinthians 12:24-26

I want to serve my community more in 2012.
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  - Galatians 5:13-14

What's your one word?


  1. My word is FREEDOM. God has been talking to me about this for the last few days and I finally connected the dots. Love you!

  2. Deb - gratitude? trust? strive? abandon? Go visit the website and read other's stories to get a better idea! DO IT!

  3. Great word!

    Mine is LOVE. Tell God how much I love Him more, love Colin more and better, show love to myself (by taking care of myself better spirtually, mentally, physically), and love others.

  4. Great word!! I'm still praying about mine... but I am really feeling like FREE is my word... freedom from bondage of sin, freedom of debt, freedom and peace in Christ.
