Five days ago I posted here about God giving me the word UNITY for this New Year.
I jotted down the 10 words that God gave to others in Blogland. that I am aware of.
The 10 are - TRUST (actually 2 of you were given trust) - SIMPLICITY - LAUGHTER - GRACE - DEEPER - MOVE - FLEXIBILITY - RESOLVE - TREASURES.
I thought it would be interesting, and in keeping with my word UNITY, to see if I could UNITE them to make a statement.
I TRUST God has given me this word for 2009 in order to lead me into total TRUST of Him. I believe it will give me a SIMPLICITY of living I have not known before and a year filled with joy and much LAUGHTER. My desire for 2009 is to understand His GRACE and love for me on a much DEEPER level. To be ready and willing to MOVE in the directions He guides and instructs. To have the FLEXIBILITY needed to make necessary changes in my life to obtain a closer walk with Him. I RESOLVE to keep the word He has given me for 2009 utmost in my mind. I believe in doing so He will reveal TREASURES to my soul that I have not yet known or experienced. I commit to prayerfully strive to fulfill the calling for UNITY that He has placed on my life.
I thank you wonderful Triune God (Father, Son & Holy Ghost) for the many and varied ways you speak to my heart.

Susan, these are God-given words and you have melded them beautifully in a prayer.

The unity of the saints blesses my heart and I know it blesses the heart of God.

It's wonderful how we can all have a different word. But we all have the same goal in mind.

Thanks for "unifying" our words.

What a great idea to have a word for the year...given by God! They are all great words, but I am not surprised with all of the God-loving people here in blogland!

It's All Good! said...

That was so neat, Susan. A great prayer to confess on a daily basis.
God bless,

Great job on the word essay and I'm sure the Holy Spirit helped with that. It reminded me of my New Year's Resolution to read the Word I'm going to do that right now!

Wonderful post. I really am happy that you are here in the world to be such a lovely influence in my life.

Sorry for no comments as my computer issues keep me away.
