God Renews

Renew is my One Word for 2015. I didn't choose it. God chose it for me.

I didn't even hear Him at first, even though I'd been asking Him what my word would be. Thankfully, He is patient and will keep repeating Himself.

It was during a worship service between Christmas and New Year's when I finally realized Renew wasn't just a word that kept coming to mind. It was MY word for the new year.

In that moment of realization, I felt uplifted. Renew sounded hopeful and full of possibilities.

I'm excited to be sharing with the One Word 365 community today. I hope you'll join me there to continue reading my story.

In Christ,


  1. Renew is a great word! I am also thankful God is patient and repeats himself. My word for this year is intentional. Hoping to be intentional and spirit led in all I do. Visiting today through #RaRaLinkup

  2. I love your beautiful autumn leaves.

  3. Hi, love your OLW for 2015. Mine is exercise. I am visiting from The Beauty in His Grip. We are neighbors. :)

  4. I'm so grateful to have a loving heavenly Father that allows us innumerable opportunities to renew our hearts. So grateful! ♥

  5. What a great word, Renew. I've been thinking about renewal long and hard this year also...and am seeing through my practice of taking hard stops for prayer and worship of God that He is renewing me each time I come to Him...and how I need it often! Thanks for this encouragement at #RaRaLinkup!

  6. His mercies are new every morning. THAT is a great word, Laura. Thanks for linking up with the Small Wonder Community.

  7. You know I love your word-- and can't wait to watch God continue to work through it this year!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
