One Little Word for 2011.

My word for 2011 is FAITH. It chose me about a week ago as I was thinking about the next year and trying to pick a word.

I feel like I’m being called to strengthen my FAITH – as in, finally find a church home here. We’ve lived in this city for 10 years but never found a church we were truly at home in.

I need to have FAITH as my son is tested for autism – faith that everything will be ok and that God won’t give me more than I can handle.

FAITH that the world will go on post-2012 (which makes me more anxious than I care to admit!).

FAITH in myself, that I am strong enough to do the things I need to do: get my life in order, persevere through the changes in our life that are happening right now (new NASA contracts mean my husband is changing companies although his job is the same), fight the depression and the diabetes and all the extra weight that (literally) weighs me down.

FAITH that God is in charge of my life and that through Him I can have peace in my mind and in my heart.

It’s a little bit of a scary word for me; when you let God take the reins you never know what will happen!! But I feel like this is what I need to do right now. For sure it will be an interesting journey!
