One Word Challenge

January 1, 2014


A teachable spirit comes
When you focus on one thing
That one thing will guide your ways
Be clear what that is

What is the one thing
I know what it is for me
Bring it to one word
Yes, boil it down to one word
It’s the window to my soul
Join me and come up with yours
I’ll encourage you
No resolutions
Just one word to guide your heart
That will challenge your thinking

Inspire you to act
To do what is good and right
That will lead you to the joy

Last year my word was “action.” This year it is different. If you want to join me in this exercise, I would be delighted.   You can share yours if you please. Happy New Year and all the best to you on your journey, my friends.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:4
My word for the year is “Presence.”

        Hi Terry – Thanks for being there. I have been following you on “Your Story Matters” for a couple of years. My sister died from ALS in 2012 and my mother passed last January. I struggle with this and other losses in my life. I want to come to acceptance in my life. Thanks for the encouragement. I greatly enjoyed reading Delta Blues. I appreciate your openess and willingness to share your life. Blessings.
