My One Word

by SomeGirl on January 6, 2011 · 13 comments

I’ve seen lots of “one-word” posts lately and it has caused me to think… What one word would I use to describe my life at this moment, my thoughts, my heart, my soul…?

I’ve thought a lot about that question and keep coming up with the same word….


Wait to make decisions, wait to see how things will work out, wait on my child’s reading development, wait for things to click, wait before you give up on homeschooling, wait for a solution to some problem areas, wait patiently, wait joyfully, wait with hope, wait without complaining, whinig or becoming frustrated, wait on the Lord… wait.

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. – Psalm 27:14

What one word would you use to describe your life at the moment, your thoughts, your heart, your soul…?

Something to think about…

I’ve been thinking about this myself, but haven’t got it clear enough in my head to blog — yet!

I recently wrote about my 3 words for the new year… I don’t think I could narrow it down to one!
Waiting is good though, so hard, but so good. Haste, not so much…


the one word that immediately came to mind was “trust”.

And He will be faithful in your waiting. Blessings to you this new year!

The word “manifestation” is in my mind today because of Epiphany. But it’s also appropriate for my life as I’ve seen the manifestation of some of my dreams with my daughter and son-in-law moving to the U.S. from England! I’ve been waiting, too (and still am in many areas), but it’s wonderful to know that God is always there, bringing little miracles and positive resolutions to our waiting in faith and hope. Wishing you and your family many wonderful answers to your wait, Michelle.


Love the thought! My word is ‘hopeful’.

My word is ‘persevere,’ especially persevere in prayer for friends and loved ones who do not know Jesus, and to never ever write anyone off as ‘hopeless.’ We have a God a miracles, and He will accomplish His purposes.


I love this! This is a great word, and one I should adopt for my life in 2011 as well. Waiting is often so hard. I always want to do things on my timeline–not God’s when I should be content with his perfect timing. Thanks for the post! Laura

Love the word, WAIT! For many years when my kids were small I didn’t do “Girls Night Out”, book clubs etc. I was with my kids and I thought this is a very short time in life and I can wait. Your word really hit me! And reminded me that all good things come in time but the good things are really happening to you right now. Enjoying the “waiting”!!

Hope you’ll all join my Zen Mama Challenge!

…which is three words so I’ll say…CHANGE as my word.

mmm, i’m loving wait. i mean, not love exactly, because it sounds HARD, but also real and faithful and disciplined and God-honoring.

blessings to you as you wait on Him:)

My current word seems to be WAIT, too! ;)
