One Word 2012....More like 3 Words...

Well I have never really like 'New Years Resolutions' but in the last few years I head people talking about One Word and I thought it was cool but didn't really think it applied to me. Until the end of 2011. I had struggled with praying consistently and struggled with eating well and feeling really bad in general, just like I wasn't worthy of God's Love(lies, all lies) 

As I began to seek & pray asking God what this year held for me He began to show me that my health was important. (Esp if I am gonna keep up with all my kids!) And that I need to have hope in all things good and lovely. Also healing from past hurts. Hurts from my childhood and my dad. That is still a tender subject for me but I really believe that this year will be the year of COMPLETE healing! I want this-I need this! So there are really three words:   
On New Years Eve God was speaking to my heart about fasting and praying. This is still a new concept to me but I am very open to it. It's not as hard as I thought it would be and I felt amazing after!!! 
I know that 2012 has big things in store for our family and I am waiting on the Lord and His perfect timing! He loves me and knows what is best for me.
Our church has been having a week of prayer and I went one morning(SO not a morning person anymore) and a few evenings and 2 more nights to go. It's a great time to pray for the country, church, school, family and anything else! :) 

Thanks for reading! I enjoy sharing this !! SO excited!!!
