I don’t know if you remember but last year I choose a word to focus on throughout the year. I set some of my goals for the year around my word to help me focus on it and I can honestly say that it was a great idea. My word for last year was ENJOY. With so much of my life changing I wanted to be able to enjoy the journey more and fully embrace all the opportunities that God had placed in my path. Looking back I can see that because I took more time to enjoy the journey I was able to see God’s hand in my everyday life. He is real and He is involved in so much more of your life than you ever thought possible. But, I was only able to see this when I was enjoying the moment and not focusing so much on the future.
So this year I choose the word TRUST. I want to put my trust in the Lord and His plan for me even when it’s not what I want. I know that when I put my trust in Him this year I will be able to look back and see that He truly has a plan for me and that everything worked out the way it was supposed to.
I want you to take a few minutes and think about something you need to work on and a word that embodies that and then take a day or two and pray about it. I know that as we set goals and strive to be better the Lord will help us become the person He wants us to be.
Share your word of the year below!
I’ve felt like I’ve needed to share this today because of how important it is in my life.
I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has brought me so much joy and purpose in my life. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each one of us. And I know that if we follow Him we will see that His plan for us is far greater than anything we could have ever imagined for ourselves. I know that because of Christ weak things can become strong and we can overcome anything that is set before us. I know that He will never abandon us or let us walk this path alone. He is there for us every step of the way and will help us if simply come unto Him. I know that Heavenly Father wants us to be truly happy and will help us feel joy daily when we are obedient and righteous. I know that families can be together forever if we do our part to follow Him. I know that the blessings of the temple are incredible and I look forward to the day when I can go inside and convent with my Father. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and it is the word of God. The power of that book is real and by reading and studying it daily I’ve seen the blessings that it brings into my life. I know that when we pray He hears us & will always answer us. Not always when or how we want but He does. I strive to strengthen my testimony each and every day as I am far far from perfect and have lots to work on. This gospel is full of happiness & hope and I am enterally grateful for it. The love I have for this gospel is beyond words. I know that without a doubt that this church is true & it’s everything to me.
