I do like doing Word Up,
where one choses a word to focus on for the year.
I haven't noticed that many people doing it this year. Maybe the fad is waning. I promised myself I would get this post written in January - so seeing that this is the last day of January....I better get this post done.
My word for this year is:
Drum roll please.
(Oh Word up is not that exciting? Okay cancel the drum roll.)
This has been something that I try to do - give God my life and do his will. There have been a lot of changes these past two years - I've grown used to the way things are. After Bruce asked me to marry him, and I said I would, I started thinking about what a great change this would make in my life. (Change can be scary.)
Right then the DJ said something about "Surrender to God". I knew right then this is my Word for the year.
I'm going to surrender to God this new adventure in life. And each aspect of this adventure - from preparing for the wedding, dealing with relatives, to adjusting to another person's ways, finances, chores etc. etc.
Of course when you surrender to God - you are trusting God to take care of you, and that He will work all things together for good.
