one word 2012: STAY

Have you heard of One Word? A pretty cool concept. You choose a word to focus on for the year. The last few weeks I've really been praying through what this year hold for our family and the best way to lead our children. Praying God would give me a verse or two to focus on and some direction. The word "Stay" kept coming to my mind. But not in the way you usually think of the word stay. I don't plan to stay the same. I want to grow and learn. But I feel like God is calling me to stay in a different way. To stay the course. To endure. To persevere.

We aren't in an ideal place right now in our life, but God has called us here and placed us here for a purpose. So I will be still. I will wait. I will endure.

What are you focusing on this year?
