My One Word

Sunday, December 30, 2012

The Mrs. @ Her Household Rhythm prayfully picks one word to ponder, pray over, and use during the whole year. I got to thinking this is a great idea and wondered if I should do the same. I couldn't think of a word and thought, guess this isn't for me. But the idea kept tugging at me, so I prayed about it (should have done that first). Later the word Joy, came to mind. It’s something I have been working on but haven’t at the same time.

I don’t mean just ‘happy’ joy but true biblical joy. I want more than feelings. I want joy that comes deep within our heart from knowing and loving our Savior.

Psalm 43:4-5 says:
Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. 
I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

This year I am going to ponder, pray over, and use the word Joy. I am using a capital ‘J’ because it’s important to me. I want more Christ-like joy in me to spread throughout my household and to teach my children the joy of the Lord. 

Joy. I like that word.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-17~Be joyful always; pray continually.
Other words for joy:  blessedness, beatitude, bliss, felicity, gladness, warm fuzzies Smile

Thank you my friend and thank you Jesus.
