My word for the year: Worship

Most years, I ask God to give me a word for the year to focus on, and this year it’s been Worship.

It actually coincides nicely with how our pastor is focusing on Prayer this year for our congregation, so I’ve recently been reading up on prayer, and finding how it includes worship in our communication with God.

I read this book, Lord, Teach Me to Pray in 28 Days by Kay Arthur, a long time ago, but started reading it again to rejuvenate my prayer life this year. I’m enjoying it a lot so far. Some of it is stuff I remember, but some is stuff I’ve forgotten, and the Lord is speaking to me through the scriptures the author has me look up and study.

Did any of you have a word for this year? How are things going with that? Any suggestions for me for my word for the year, worship?

  1. That's an awesome word! I haven't picked one yet but I want mine to be prayer. I've been lax in my prayer life and it's time I start being serious in my prayer life. It's a means on communication and drawing closer to God. I will actually look into reading that book! Thanks!

  2. Love your word! Mine is peaceful. Things have been so crazy around here, I need some peace. Peace to not worry, peace with God, peace in life. I have a scripture to go with it: Philippians 4:6-7--"Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks. Then God's peace, which goes beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus." I've seen where some people even have a mascot for their word. I decided on a cow. They are so peaceful standing out in a field under a shade tree with the sun shining and a breeze blowing chewing their cud. When I feel unpeaceful, I can visualize this and it brings me back to my word and the scripture. I find having the word keeps me focused more on God and not on my situations. I will be praying for you and your word and for it to impact you in the coming year. Once you have a word and start looking up scriptures to go with it and reading books to help you understand the word, your life changes!

Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
