The Word God Gave Me For 2012

Several of my blogging friends have written lately about the word that God has impressed upon them for the new year. It has taken me a while to sort through my thoughts and search my heart to arrive at one special  word for me for this year.

When I had what could have been a major problem several years ago, I kept hearing this word in my mind as I tried to work. I later ran across a scripture that told me to take heed and follow the advice of the wisest man on the earth. Here's what he said.

"TRUST in the Lord your God and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)

Several years ago, I came up with an acrostic for this word.

We all know that God's ways are not our ways. We also know His timing is not our timing. I have been concerned about my management of time. I have decided to plan my days with God being in control. I have spent the past few days making a list of the things I would like to accomplish in my house. The things I don't get to become a priority item for the next day.

I believe God will guide me through all that comes my way in 2012; all I have to do is TRUST Him.


  1. Good word and meaning. I like the acrostic! Dear Lord, may Cecelia trust in You and lean not on her own understanding in the days ahead and always, In all her ways let Cecelia acknowledge You, and trust You to direct her paths. In Jesus name, Amen! Congratulations on your one word for 2012

  2. What an excellent and inspired word for the year. He will indeed guide your paths.

  3. Dawn:
    Thank you for your thought and your beatiful prayer. It is such a blessing to have the scripture prayed for me.

  4. Karen:
    Thank you for your kind comment. I like that word 'indeed'.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
