BLESSED: My Word for the Year -- 2016

For the last several years, I've chosen a word of focus for the year (JOY, ORDER, ENCOURAGE).  The words have represented things that I wanted to work on or things that GOD was calling me to do.  This year's "word" is really two words and they serve as a reminder from GOD that HE is at work in my life.  I am BLESSED.  Oh, so very BLESSED -- yet I often forget just that as the circumstances of my day-to-day crowd in.  How about you?

For 2016, I will be focusing on the fact that I am BLESSED; and I'll be taking that focus one step further as I purpose to LIVE in the blessing that is from GOD. 

The funny thing is, once I realized that I am to LIVE BLESSED this year, it's becoming easier to focus on the good and positive instead of the bad and negative.  In the most unexpected places, the word BLESSED shows up.  Isn't that just like our dear FATHER to encourage us as we walk in obedience?

I am BLESSED.  Oh, so BLESSED.  And you are too.  Join me this year as I learn to walk upright in the blessings of the LORD.

Because this YEAR has great potential,

I'm linking up with several others on the TOS Homeschool Crew Review Team.  You can read all of our posts for inspiration as you choose your own One Word for 2016.  Why don't you join us?

  1. I am so very blessed as well, and I guess I need to be reminded to live like I know that! Great word for the year!

  2. What a great way to remind yourself of God's purpose in your life. I love the word combination. May your year truly be blessed and may you live blessed in this year.
