Believe | 2016


One Word for an entire year. 52 weeks, 366 days this year and one word to cover them all. It can be a daunting thing to try and come up with and I must admit I was close to skipping the process entirely this year. Then I sat down to record a Hello January for my Channel and as I spoke realized I do have a word for 2016. Last year I chose Growth, a word that is actually still echoing in my heart now but this year I feel to truly reach my full potential of growth I also need to Believe.

 

 

Believe.

To believe is a verb defined primarily as follows:

accept (something) as true; feel sure of the truth of.

So what is that something? Well I don’t have just one but I actually have a few somethings I want to believe this year. For myself, for others and for my future success.

In His Plan.

His. Him. God. The one who I trust to lead me in every way. I mean that’s how it’s supposed to be right? Unconditional trust in Him. Yet there are times when I question His plans. I wonder if the delays are worth the wait, if the denials are deserved and if the decisions are always ones I like. Why? I’m human. I’m flawed and I’m a work in continual progress. I have those moments when I think I know better, know more and even know best. Still I am learning that believing in His plan for me will help eliminate all the wonder and instead set me on a path to the good I know He has prepared for me. It is only when I do this fully that the Blessings flow. So this year, 2016, I am determined to believe and accept His plan as true for my life.

In The Good.

I need to learn how to believe in the good of other people. I have been jaded for sometime now. The times when I offered myself as a friend and received nothing back. When I shared parts of myself to have the exposed to others. I have wounds but I must learn to let them heal. I can’t allow them to remain open and hold me back. The only way I can get past the hurt is to believe it isn’t the norm. There are good people out there. Even now, I am learning day by day to trust again and to simply believe in the good.

In Myself.

Yup. I doubt me far too often. I question if I am good enough, smart enough, pretty enough. All of the enoughs that I am sure you have had at some point or another. The problem starts when I begin to let those questions stop me from moving forward. I begin to stand still in my doubt instead of moving in the promises God has made me for my success. That’s something I plan on letting go this year. I am going to believe in me. I will feel sure of the truth that I am good enough, smart enough, pretty enough and more than enough because God says so!

    Believe is a great word choice and I love reading all the ways you wish to have it shape your life this year and for future years to come. My word this year is Focus. It was hard for me to do last year and now that I have cleanse myself of some negativity, I'm finding it easier to focus.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Lowanda!! I’ve heard focus a few times this year. It is a really great word to help make your year not only successful but peaceful in so many ways as well. I know you will do great in finding and keeping your focus for 2016… it’s always great to have you come by!

    A great word choice and I love what you've done with it here. My word this year is calm – because it's something I need more of in my life!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! I think you should get the entire month to come up with one. I almost thought I wasn\’t going to have one either…sanity could be a good one though…LOL

    Love this post! My word for 2016 is Fearless, since I have hit my 30's I have found myself being fearful of a number of things. But I did not realize that I was fearful until recently.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Girl!!! Now that’s a Word!!!! Love it… what is it about the 30s? I have lost most of my fear but I’m also working on confidence…I need to get that by 40 no exceptions! LOL… Thanks so much for coming by Lovie…happy to see you 🙂

    I have been wanting to do this for a few weeks now! Our church has a large chalk wall set up for us to write our one word for the year on and I haven't spent time doing it but this post has motivated me to start praying over it! Thanks for this!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Do It! 😀 It\’s such a great way to keep focused on something to achieve during the year. I know God will give you the Word meant just for you and your life…

  • Maureen@ScoopsofJoy

    What a powerful word of the year! I love how that one word could represent so much in our lives. Wishing you a fantastic and wonderful 2016! My goal for this year is to work deeper on myself, to love myself better.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thank you Maureen!! It is definitely a great way to stay focused throughout the year and in our lives. Thanks so much!! Wishing you the same and many many Blessings in 2016 I am sure you will attain your goal…
