The My One Word campaign encourages people to choose a word that reflects what God has shown them He wants them to focus on in the coming year. It is time to prayerfully consider your word for 2023. My One Word for 2022 was Praise. I have focused on praising God for who He is, what He is doing and has done, and the promise of what He will do.
Praise is the theme of many psalms. So, I spent much time in the book of Psalms. A friend gave me a copy of the two-volume work Thou Art with Me by Abie Kulynych. It is a reflection on God’s heart and nature as revealed by the the psalms. These daily devotions helped me to meditate on the depth of God’s love for us. I highly recommend these volumes. https://smile.amazon.com/Thou-Art-Me-Revealed-through/dp/1735592609/ref=sr_1_1?crid=N7122RM4VYYU&keywords=thou+art+with+me+abie+kulynych&qid=1672503951&sprefix=thou+art+with+me%2C%2Caps%2C1132&sr=8-1
For 2023, my One Word is Reflect. Reflect can mean to give back or show an image of; as a Christian, I want my words and deeds to reflect Christ. Reflect can also mean to ponder or meditate, as in meditating on God’s Word. The verse I have chosen for the year that embodies these combined ideas is Psalm 77:12. “I will also meditate on all Your work and talk of Your deeds.”
I encourage each of you to select a word that God has put on your heart to be your focus for 2023,. Great resources to help you find your word and grow through your word are available from My One Word (myoneword.org)
Prayerfully consider the word God is putting on your heart and then please share your word and why you chose it.
