The Word of the Year

If you're a blog surfer like I am, you've probably seen a lot of people picking their "word of the year" for 2008. Ali Edwards started this last year (I believe). You pick a word that you feel will be significant for you in the new year. You can click HERE to see what others have come up with.

I really wanted to give this a try, but every time I sat down to think of "My Word", this verse kept coming to my mind.
Well, it may not be "a" word, but it is "the" word, so I thought I would make this my Word for the year. I encourage you to try this out too! I can't wait until this time next year when I can look back and fully understand the importance of this Word in my life.


  1. I love it. Oh and what truth this is. Very mighty and powerful.

  2. I love this verse....thanks for sharing :)

  3. Perfect Julie, absolutely perfect. Amazing really.

  4. I've been away so long, I thought I had reached the wrong blog when I got here! Love the changes Julie, they seem so YOU.
    I've been having trouble with a word for myself, but will persevere. Hey, maybe that should be MY word!? *chuckle*

    I'm glad to be back in the swing of things and can't wait to spend time perusing all your creations that I've missed in the last two months.

  5. Julie, I am so glad I read your entry today. What a great verse & and wonderful idea to pick out a "word" to use for the year. I visited Ali's blog and added my own word. (Zeal) - There were no Z words and after reading the dictionary definition I think it fits your word as well. Happy 2008 & may the Lord bless you.

  6. Julie;
    I just subscribed to your blog over the last few days of the holidays and I am so glad I did. I love it when I find my sisters in the Lord! My "Word" this year is... "... for I have learned in whatever situation I am in to be content." Philippians 4:11 (Paul)
    So I guess my word for this year could also be "Content".
    Isn't that a great verse?
    I also love the one you chose.

  7. This is my favorite verse! I'm so glad you went with a group of words - more of a concept, a way of living - than just a word.

  8. I think "The Word" is a perfect word. I love this verse and think it will a great encouragement all year. Hope you get the desires of your heart.
    JoAnn B.

  9. I have lived by this verse since Nov 1989, when my firt husband and I seperated and eventually divorced..
    HE was so faithful to me, that he sent my current husband within 2 months of my divorce ... it has been 18 years of marriage as of the 23 Feb 2008 and there are many more years yet to come...
    I DELIGHT in HIM ALWAYS no matter the circumstance...He KNOWS me intimately... I am ALWAYS HIS!!! :)
